China is the world’s second largest exporter of art – Martin Bailey

From the Art Newspaper:

A Unesco report on global trade in cultural goods and services includes two surprises. The first is that China has now become the second largest exporter of “visual arts”, accounting for 19% of world exports in this category (particularly statuary).

The second surprise is that the global trade in both the visual arts and heritage goods is concentrated in the top five importing and exporting countries.
