China's retail sales up 10.7 pc in April

Compared to April past year, China's domestic crude oil production decreased by 3.7 percent to 15.99 million tons, or 3.89 million bpd, last month.

In the first four months, total retail sales of consumer goods rose 10.2 percent year on year, 0.2 percentage points faster than the growth in the first quarter, according to Xing Zhihong, a spokesperson with the NBS.

Property investment in central China grew 16.8 percent year on year in the same period, faster than the growth rates in eastern and western regions, while property investment in northeastern China declined 13.7 percent.

Private sector investment grew 6.9 percent in the first four months to 8.81 trillion yuan, accounting for 61 percent of the total, the statement said.

Industrial production rose 6.5% from a year earlier, against the 7% predicted in a Bloomberg poll of analysts, and the 7.1% by Reuters.

Industrial production, a broad measure of factory output, rose 6.5% in April from a year earlier, the National Bureau of Statistics reported in Beijing.

"The upshot is that slowing domestic consumption growth and softer external demand appear to have driven the slowdown in China at the start of Q2".

"We expect crude oil output to recover more in the second half to show positive growth, as a result of higher oil prices and state oil companies boosting spending", said Tee. Infrastructure investment and property investment, however, reported solid growth, increasing 23.3% y/y (ytd) and 9.3% y/y, respectively.

Carlos Martinez gets 2 hits, Cardinals beat Cubs 5-3
Before that, the Cardinals had put together a couple runs in the fourth, but had been nearly silent since offensively. Rookie Magneuris Sierra has provided a spark, since he came up, hitting.353, and scoring seven runs, in four games.

China has cut its economic growth target to around 6.5 per cent this year to give policymakers more room to push through painful reforms and contain financial risks after years of debt-fueled stimulus. Analysts had expected a 10.6 percent rise, edging lower from the previous month. That was slower than expected and a bit less than the January-March period. Growth will continue to be underpinned by a strong infrastructure pipeline which also echoes the Belt and Road initiative and urbanisation projects like Xiong'an.
