The first two weeks of 2018

The first couple weeks of the year were the best and worst for all the major players in the global economy, including China.

On the good side, the Chinese economy is growing faster than expected, with gross domestic product (GDP) rising at an annual rate of 6.6% last month.

As a result, Beijing is aiming to exceed the 3% growth target for 2020, which it has so far achieved twice, and is likely to be able to achieve even more in the coming years.

However, the economy has also been hit by the global financial crisis, which has weighed on demand and helped drive down prices for imported goods and services, such as cars and aircraft.

For investors, the crisis has been particularly bad.

Chinese stocks have fallen more than 15% since the start of the financial crisis and the government is considering cutting subsidies on some industries.

On Friday, China’s central bank raised interest rates for the first time in 18 months, which will give the country a much stronger economic cushion.

This means that China’s economy is far more flexible than its peers.

China has more than 5 million factories and some 400 million people, but only 3.3 million are working.

It has also a far bigger stock market and has more options for investors.

The global economy also had a good start to the year, with the US and the UK benefiting from the Brexit vote and a slowdown in China.

However, that trend has reversed, with both the US economy and China contracting in the first half of the month. 

The US economy is expected to contract by 0.5% in the second half of 2018. 

Chinese GDP growth is expected only to improve over the course of the next two years.

The world economy has been in recession since the middle of last year.

With China expected to surpass the 3.0% growth goal for 2020 and more countries, including the US, China, and Japan, raising their goals, the world is likely in for a long period of contraction in the next year or two.

In terms of global growth, the first quarter of 2018 was the slowest since mid-2013, with China still ahead of the pack.

The US was the only major economy to gain ground, with growth expected to average 5.3% for the year.

The slowdown in the US is due to the effects of the Paris climate change accord, which reduced the emissions of CO2 by more than half from levels that were in place before the accord was signed in 2015.

A global economy of just under 1.8 billion people will be struggling to maintain its current levels of growth.

There are signs that this is starting to turn around.

China’s manufacturing output increased by 5.4% in May, the largest increase since March.

However it will be a long time before the Chinese consumer sector is able to absorb the full benefits of this increase.

Chinese consumers have been looking for lower prices, higher quality goods, and better service.

This is reflected in their purchasing patterns.

China now has more choice than ever, with many consumers choosing to shop online.

However this trend will continue to slow as more Chinese firms shut down.

Meanwhile, Chinese manufacturing exports slumped for the second consecutive month in May.

China is already suffering from a high unemployment rate of more than 10%.

As the economy slows down, the US will be facing an even more severe economic slowdown in 2018.

Over the next few years, the effects from the Paris accord and the Brexit referendum will make it more difficult for China to achieve the 3%.

Chinese GDP will contract by 2.9% in 2021 and by 6.2% in 2022.
