IMF likely to revise China GDP forecast higher – Danske Bank
In view of Danske Bank analysts, following the U.S.-China phase-one deal, the IMF is set to revise its China GDP forecast higher for 2020 to around 6 percent from 5.8 percent.
“This was the message from the new IMF Director Kristalina Georgieva in an interview with Caixin. Consensus seems to be forming around 6 percent growth in 2020. The signal coming out of the recent China Economic Work Conference was also that the new growth target for 2020 will be around 6 percent. It will not be revealed officially, though, until the National People’s Congress starting on 5 March.”
