중국 경제, 올 1/4분기 성장 둔화 (E)


중국 경제가 올1/4분기 동안 완만한 성장 둔화를 보였으나, 물가상승과 세계적인 신용위기 악화에도 불구하고 활력을 잃지 않고 있다고 중국 당국이 밝혔습니다.

중국 국가통계국이 16일 발표한 자료에 따르면, 중국 경제는 올해 1월부터 3월까지 지난 해 같은 기간의 11% 보다 약간 낮은 10.6%의 성장률을 보였습니다.

중국의 소비자 물가는 지난 2월 12년만의 최고치인 8.7%까지 치솟았으나, 3월에는 이보다 약간 낮은 8.3% 를 기록했습니다.

China says its economy suffered only a mild setback in the first quarter of 2008, and remains resilient despite inflation and the worsening global credit crisis.

Figures released today (Wednesday) by the government's National Bureau of Statistics show China's economy expanded by 10-point-six percent between January and March, compared to just over 11 percent for the same period last year.

The bureau says consumer prices climbed eight-point-three percent in March, down from February's mark of eight-point-seven percent -- the highest inflation rate in nearly 12 years.

The price increases are blamed in part on fierce snowstorms in January and February that disrupted factory production and destroyed crops.

Beijing has pledged to control inflation and wants to avoid any possible public protests over food prices especially with the Beijing Olympics coming up in August.
