Unemployment in China

China Unemployment | Economic News & Forecasts

China - Unemployment

Available economic indicators show growth momentum remains weak. Industrial production was subdued in October, as the trade war with the U.S eroded manufacturing activities. This trend is expected to continue in the coming months as corroborated by a new drop in exports in November. Moreover, mounting economic uncertainty is postponing investment plans, especially among foreign firms. The main silver lining has been the rebound in the manufacturing PMI in November. Meanwhile, on 13 December, President Trump agreed to a limited trade deal with China, effectively barring a fresh round of tariffs due on 15 December. As part of the deal, U.S. officials stated that China will purchase more U.S. agricultural products, while the U.S. will remove some existing tariffs in return. At the time of writing, however, Chinese authorities have not yet confirmed whether the two sides have reached an agreement.
