Economic Focus April 2014

Economic Focus April 2014

Report summary

Recent indicators have sparked concerns around China’s economic health. Most notably, China’s GDP growth slowed to 7.4% in Q1 2014 from 7.7% in the previous quarter, making it the slowest pace since Q3 2012. Sounds familiar? Last year, China’s economy similarly had a stuttering start before its economy was bolstered by a mini-stimulus package unveiled in July 2013. The key question is whether we will see a similar story this year – will China’s economy bounce back?
