China’s economic growth looks stronger so far this year, but the country still faces financial risks and uncertainties created by the lack of clarity over the policies to be pursued by Donald Trump’s administration in Washington, Chinese economists said. China is likely to grow by 7% in the first quarter due to a recovery in manufacturing and exports, said Liang Hong, chief economist at China International Capital Corporation, a leading brokerage firm in the mainland. That compares with growth of 6.8% posted in the final quarter of last year. Without black swan events such as “a cliff fall in external demand” or a rapid rise in real interest rates in China, the nation’s economic recovery will continue, Liang said according to the South China Morning Post. However, the risk of capital flowing out of the country will persist.
