China’s Growth Slides to Weakest Pace in Almost Three Decades

Jul 15 , 2019

China’s economy slowed to the weakest pace since the early 1990s amid the ongoing trade standoff with the U.S., while monthly indicators provided signs that a stabilization is emerging.

Gross domestic product rose 6.2.% in the April-June period from a year earlier, below the 6.4% expansion in the first quarter and matching economists’ estimates. In June, factory output rose 6.3%, retail sales rose 9.8%, while investment gained 5.8% in the first half of the year -- all three beating estimates in further evidence that stimulus measures to curb the slowdown may be feeding through.
