Chinese economy in the third quarter of 2020 grew 4.9%YoY, continuing the
positive trend from the second quarter of 2020 in which a 3.2% growth YoY was

particularly retail sales that grew 3.3% YoY in September after being seen to contract

in the handling of the COVID-19 pandemic will be challenged by mounting risks
amid the presently faltering global economy. Simultaneously, several economic
