China’s economy may grow 9.5 percent in 2011, the China Securities Journal reported today, citing estimates by Fan Jianping, chief economist at the State Information Center.
China may keep a moderately loose monetary policy stance and maintain new loan growth at 7.5 trillion yuan next year, the Beijing-based newspaper reported, citing Fan. The nation’s 2011 trade surplus may narrow by about 19 percent from this year to $140 billion, Fan was cited as saying.
The State Information Center is a research agency under the National Development and Reform Commission.
