China Economic Performance in the First Half of 2016

Part of the Current Chinese Economic Report Series book series (CCERS)


China’s economic growth continued to slow down further. In the first half of 2016, real GDP growth moderated to 6.7% YoY from 6.9% in 2015 and 7% a year earlier respectively. Of the industrial enterprises above designated size, value added decreased marginally to 6.0% from 6.1% in 2015 and 6.3% a year ago. (see Fig. 1.1). China’s continued economic slowdown reflects that, given subdued external demand, increasing labor cost, and end of property boom, the investment-driven and export-oriented growth model, which has served China well in the past, is now in a difficult position as returns on investment (ROI) has fallen.
