China’s economic growth slows

China’s economy grew by 9.1% in the year to 30 September, down from 9.5% in the year to 31 July.

Inflation is just over 6% and the slowdown in growth is seen as beneficial in helping to slow this inflation and achieve a ‘soft landing’ for the economy.

China is a strong focus for global investors, and ‘economists say’ that the “biggest risks to the Chinese economy are a global recession, which could severely dampen exports, or a collapse in the Chinese property market (which has been the main driver of growth).
