International Reserves in China

China - International Reserves

In the second quarter of the year, the Chinese economy expanded at the weakest pace since at least 1992, as the trade war with the United States continued to undermine the external sector and investment. Nominal merchandise exports contracted in Q2, mostly reflecting weak global demand and spillovers from the China-U.S. trade spat. Moreover, trade disputes dragged on investment throughout the quarter despite increased bank lending causing a notable uptick in June. Volatility in China’s economic data is expected to continue further down the road until the trade dispute settles. In this regard, June’s strong economic data for the domestic economy should be taken with a pinch of salt until additional data can corroborate that growth has indeed effectively bottomed out. In late June, China and the U.S. agreed to restart trade negotiations, while the U.S. canceled new tariffs on Chinese exports.
