Fan Gang, the academic member of the People’s Bank of China’s monetary policy committee seen in our illustration, told a forum he thought China’s economic recovery will be sustained into next year as fiscal stimulus continues to give a boost and private investment and exports both pick up.
His view is the economy would grow by around 8% next year.
Fan Gang said, "Talking about the economy next year, I am personally optimistic . I think the recovery will continue.
"I believe China will see positive growth in exports next year. We’re still confident that China can achieve around eight percent growth next year."
