SnapSTAT - China post-lockdown bounce
Friday 5 May 2023In a welcome development for New Zealand exporters, China’s near-term activity data has been stronger than expected. Q1 GDP rose 4.5% y/y, consistent with strong data flows ranging from PMI to trade. Both credit expansion and construction PMI hit a record high. There are upside risks to ANZ’s GDP forecast of 5.4% for 2023. Q2 GDP could hit 8% y/y. If the property recovery is sustained, GDP may approach 5% in the second half of the year.
