Even Germany has a (growing) trade deficit with China. You can check some numbers here (scroll down to table, Einfuhr = imports, Ausfuhr = exports, Saldo = surplus/deficit). Exports to China did grow, though they stalled in 2005, and imports grew much faster from 2004. Also check this for a breakdown according to regions. Us new EU members ("Beitrittsländer") and Russia allowed export growth for Germany as strong or stronger than China. Note also that beyond from these three and port country Netherlands, import growth was strongest from France.
