China’s Economy Grows – With ‘Weak Spots’

9

As most nations around the world struggle with new lockdowns and layoffs during the pandemic, only one major economy has bounced back after bringing the coronavirus mostly under control.
That is  China.
The Chinese economy grew 2.3 percent last year, the country’s National Bureau of Statistics announced on Monday.
 By contrast, the U.S., Japan and many nations in Europe as well as India are expected to report steep falls in output and suffer contraction. 
Exports and infrastructure have fueled the growth in China.

 And there are pockets of weakness, like the lack of jobs for recent college graduates with little experience. 
Hotels and restaurants in inland provinces have not fully recovered like those in the major cities.

 The authorities are starting to reimpose a wide variety of health checks that are discouraging consumers from spending money.
