China’s economic growth continues to slow – BNP Paribas

Analysts at BNP Paribas note that China’s economic growth continues to slow, so they have cut their GDP forecasts since June.

  • “Industrial activity and exports have been hard hit by US tariff hikes. Domestic demand has also decelerated.
  • The central bank is easing liquidity and credit conditions, though the reduction in financial-instability risks should remain a priority and banks seem to remain prudent. Fiscal policy is expansionary through increased infrastructure spending and a rising number of household/corporate tax cuts.
  • In the short term, exports and private domestic investment should continue to decelerate. Tax measures should have some success in supporting consumer spending.”
