BEIJING — China reported GDP rose 2.3% last year as the world struggled to contain the coronavirus pandemic.

Gross domestic product grew by 6.5% in the fourth quarter from a year ago, official data from National Bureau of Statistics showed.

However, Chinese consumers remained reluctant to spend, as retail sales contracted 3.9% for the year. Retail sales for the fourth quarter rose 4.6% from a year ago.

Online sales of consumer goods rose at a relatively rapid pace of 14.8% last year, the statistics bureau said, but the proportion of overall retail sales held fairly steady at around one-fourth.

Economists expected China to have been the only major economy to grow last year, and predicted GDP expanded by just over 2%.


 

 

 

Il Covid-19 è emerso per la prima volta nella città cinese di Wuhan alla fine del 2019. Nel tentativo di controllare il virus, le autorità cinesi hanno chiuso più della metà del paese e l'economia si è contratta del 6.8% nei primi tre mesi del 2020.

Però, i China returned to growth by the second quarter. Economists polled by Reuters predicted GDP would increase 6.1% in the fourth quarter, faster than the 4.9% pace of the prior quarter.

La cifra di crescita del PIL cinese quest'anno verrà da una base abbassata.

Alla fine di dicembre, il National Bureau of Statistics lowered China’s official growth rate for 2019 to 6.0%, versus the previously reported 6.1%. The cut primarily occurred in manufacturing, as factories dealt with new U.S. tariffs on billions of dollars’ worth of Chinese goods.
