China Economy Slows Further in 2nd Quarter Amid Trade Standoff
Monday, 15 July 2019 09:14 WIB | ECONOMY |ekonomi China

China economy continued slowing in the second quarter, with sluggish domestic output and continuing trade tensions pulling growth down to the weakest pace since the early 1990s.

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.

The slowdown adds to the pressure Chinese policy makers face as they attempt to negotiate a deal with the U.S. while balancing the objective of job creation with the need to defuse financial risks at home. Although Chinese negotiators are talking with their U.S. counterparts again, there is no certainty that a deal will be reached.
