China demonstrates signs of slowing economic surge
China's major financial institution has been heavily distracted by the immediate soar in borrowing costs after the American Federal Reserve System, while Chinese economic data for May disclosed that the economy of the leading Asian country is losing momentum.
In May, in this Asian country industrial output tacked on by up to 6.8% in contrast with 2017, as the National Bureau of Statistics revealed. It turned out to be lower than the previous reading of 7% as well as experts’ estimate of 6.9%.
Additionally, the bureau informed that in May retail sales went up by only 8.5%, although market experts had hoped for a 9.6% leap after a soar of 9.4% in April.
Investments in fixed assets rallied by 6.1% in May in contrast with the same period of 2017, which is also lower than the estimate of market experts as well as the previous reading of 7%. Evidently, it appeared to be the slowest surge since 1999.
In May, the unemployment rate in urban areas went down to about 4.8% versus April’s reading of 4.9%.

The data is 100% confirmed by a slowdown in industry as well as retail trade in May that points to a slowdown in GDP for the second quarter.
