China's economy has maintained growth of 10.4 percent so far this year. China continues to be a major driving force behind world economic growth, in an unstable international financial market.
The latest data indicates that China's investment and export both have maintained an increase of more than 20 percent for the first 8 months of this year.
Consumption figures are also increasing. Experts say that barring any major mishaps, China's economy is expected to maintain a annual growth rate around 10 percent. The CPI year-on-year increase is forecast to continue to decline in the coming months.
