July 26th, Unirule Macroeconomics Quarterly Analysis 2018 Q2 was released in Beijing. Here is the extract of the report "Economy Slows Down while Stabilizing, Trade War Impact Emerges" penned by Professor ZHANG Shuguang and Ms. ZHANG Chi.
"Against the backdrop of “particularly complicated and challenging” international and domestic environment, China’s GDP grew by 6.8% for the first half of the year, with industrial added-value growing by 6.7%, CPI increasing by 2%, demonstrating a trend of stabilizing and mild slowdown. Adjustment policies are enhanced for the housing market where lottery systems are readopted in many cities; “defending blue-sky campaign” keeps going and environmental inspection became the major measure for eco-protection and environmental governance; a Sino-US trade war in sight with obvious negative impact on Chinese consumers and positive influence on monopolies, and its longterm influence on China and the world economy will emerge."
