According to the official forecast of the National Bureau of Statistics of China, GDP growth in the IV quarter of 2019 amounted to 6.0% in annual terms, which coincided with analysts' expectations and the previous value of the indicator for the III quarter. The gross domestic product of China in 2019 amounted to 99,086 trillion yuan ($14.4 trillion).

Experts note that the growth rate of the second largest economy in the world continues to be kept near a minimum for almost 30 years while the country’s birth rate fell to a record low. The reason for this was sluggish demand at home and abroad, as well as pressure in the trade from the United States.

For the whole of 2019, the Chinese economy grew by 6.1%, a minimum of 29 years. A year earlier, GDP growth was 6.6%. However, the current indicator is still within the range set by the government at 6-6.5%.
