Mia, Thanks. You ask "Where one can find these World Bank estimates on "normal" and other imports of China?" We don't use special data for this. China's customs administration, the key source of data on external trade, publishes data "per custom regime". We use this data to split up exports and imports into "processing" and "non processing" trade. This data is in US$. I deflated it using constructed, weighted trade deflators (the customs administration also publishes trade deflators for different kind of goods--manufacturing vs. primary commodities). Hope this helps. Best, Louis
