Global Equities Fall as China’s Economy Slows Further

Chinese stocks and investors

China’s economy expanded at a 3% annual rate last year, less than half the rate projected for 2021.

European stocks fell, while Asian shares were mixed as investors awaited whether the Bank of Japan would change its long-term policy of keeping its key interest rate at -0.11% at the end of a meeting on Wednesday.

After being dragged down by antivirus controls and a real estate slump last year, the Chinese economy is gradually reviving. According to data released Tuesday, the world’s second-largest economy grew 2.9% year on year in December, down from 3.9% the previous month.

To spur recovery, the government has begun to ease technology industry restrictions and provide more assistance to private businesses and the real estate sector.

There are signs of stabilization, with policy support provided near the end of 2022 reflected in the relative resilience of infrastructure investment and credit growth.

The DAX in Germany fell 0.1% to 15,121.32, while the CAC 40 in Paris fell 1 point to 7,042.75. The FTSE 100 in the United Kingdom fell 0.1% to 7,849.74. The S&P 500 futures were 0.3% lower, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average futures were 0.2% lower.

On Wednesday, US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen was scheduled to meet with her Chinese counterpart in Switzerland. Yellen and Chinese Vice Premier Liu He intend to discuss economic developments between the United States and China at a time when trade and technology tensions remain high.
