In this paper, we use an intensity approach incorporated with gravity model to measure and compare China's bilateral trade with the world average level. Our gravity model adjusted trade intensity index indicates that: 1. The trade between China and South-East countries are not more intensively than the world average when the effects of economic size and distance (both geographical and cultural) have been considered. 2. China has increasing interests in Africa Market during the period of 1985 and 2005. 3. China has intensively imported from Middle East oil suppliers. But the intensity of Japan's import from this region is much higher than that of China's.
