The Heat: China’s economic recovery

The Heat

The coronavirus pandemic has impacted economies around the world. In the first quarter, China’s GDP contracted by 6.8 %. The International Monetary Fund estimates the global economy will contract by 4.9 % this year.
But China is showing that when the pandemic is under control, a quick recovery is possible. In the second quarter, China’s GDP rose 3.2 % – more than what was expected.
