Chinese retail sales grow slower than expected

Industrial production rose 5.3 percent year-on-year in August, according to statistics released by China’s Bureau of Statistics on Wednesday. Analysts expected a 5.8 percent expansion following the 6.4 percent rise in July. The August figure reflected the weakest growth since July last year. (MTI)
