Economic growth for July through September fell to 9.6 percent in China, down from 10.3 percent in the second quarter.
Sheng Laiyun, a spokesman from China's National Bureau of Statistics,
says the figures show a year-on-year increase of 10.6 percent, 2.5 percentage
points higher than the same period last year.
The figures show the Chinese economy remains strong, and despite fears from many economists, is far from overheating.
The consumer price index rose 3.6 percent in September, up slightly from 3.5 percent in August.However, it remains well above the target for the year of 3 percent.
On Tuesday, the central bank raised interest rates, in a move many economists say was intended to gently cool the economy and get a firm control on inflation.
Jinny Yan, an economist Standard Chartered Bank, says she is happy to see that the Chinese economy is not overheating.
“A 9.6 percent growth is in our view much more sustainable and we think it is a healthy growth pace compared to the first quarter of this year，”she noted.“What it means is that the economy has now stabilized.It has recovered.Now it is more about concentrating on the other risks, for example inflation or asset price inflation in the economy.”
The interest rate increase and the slowing growth may ease pressure from overseas for China to allow its currency to appreciate.
Several countries, including the United States, complain that China's yuan is kept unfairly weak to give Chinese exports a market advantage.China says it will gradually a more reasonable exchange rate policy, to keep its economy growing, but the yuan has strengthened only about 2.5 percent in recent months.
Many economists and international policy analysts have said they expect China to face new demands about the yuan when the leaders of the Group of 20 leading economies meet next month. Notes：

Newspaper is not only the most common media in our daily life, but
also the oldest technique in the field of message publication.It is very late
to see the modern newspaper in China.Until the end of the 19th century,
those newspapers published by the Chinese official agents or private
expresses hadn't started to become more and more.The newspaper called
“Stories inside and outside China”was first published by Weixin Faction,
in 1895, the 21st year of Guangxu Era in Qing Dynasty.It is one of the
most influential newspapers published by the Chinese at that time.
In fact, the Chinese“Dibao”is the earliest and oldest newspaper in the
world.In the West Han epoch, in order to strengthen the Royal power, the
Han government carried out the“Jun xian zhi”．Every eparch should set
up its office in the capital Chang'an, which has the same function as the
provincial office in Beijing now.These offices were called “Di”s.Officers are selected by the eparchial government which they are responsible for, and sent to the “Di”to collecting the messages announced by the administrative agents or even the empire, then writing them on the bamboo placard, and deliver them to their shire leaders via the early post station for reading.So these placards with information were called “Dibao”s.
The continuous enforcement of central royal power in ancient China has also brought the development of “Dibao” into . Although the name of “Dibao” had been changed for many times in the period from the Han, Tang, Song, Yuan, Ming, to Qing Dynasty, its publication has never been interrupted.In addition to it, its essence and contents hadn't been changed a lot.
