China's GDP grows 4.9% in Q3
China's economy grew by 4.9 percent year-on-year in the third quarter of the year, versus 3.2 percent in the second one, the National Bureau of Statistics said on Monday.
The country's GDP growth reached 0.7 percent year-on-year over the first three quarters of this year, turning positive from negative 1.6 percent in the first half, the NBS said.
The Chinese economy posted a continuous recovery in the first nine months and achieved significant results in coordinating development with epidemic prevention, the bureau said in a statement.
The NBS, however, noted that external uncertainties and the risk of epidemic resurgence domestically remain. "The economy is still in the process of recovery, and the foundation for sustained recovery needs to be consolidated," the bureau said in a statement.
