    ZEW financial market experts again revise growth forecasts for China downwards.

    The coronavirus pandemic continues to leave a deep mark in the growth forecasts for China for 2020 and 2021, with the growth forecasts for real gross domestic product (GDP) dropping heavily again after an already significant decline in the previous month. This is the main result of the March survey (9–18 March 2020) among international financial market experts for China. The survey is regularly conducted by ZEW Mannheim and Fudan University (Shanghai) on the basis of the China Economic Panel (CEP).

    Effects of the corona pandemic lead to an increase of the CEP indicator to 4.4 points.

    The most recent survey conducted in February (11–19 February 2020) shows the considerable effects the coronavirus epidemic has on growth forecasts for China, with experts expecting real gross domestic product (GDP) to increase by only 5.4 per cent in 2020 and by only 4.2 per cent in the first quarter of this year. The CEP indicator, which is based on the China Economic Panel (CEP) and reflects the economic expectations of international financial market experts for China, rose to a value of 4.4 points in February 2020, thus again finding itself just outside the negative range. When interpreting this increase, however, it must be noted that the forecast horizon of the CEP indicator is twelve months. The experts surveyed therefore do not expect a noticeable improvement until the beginning of 2021, and this starting from an already quite weak situation of minus 10.9 points. Current point forecasts for Chinese real gross domestic product are much more revealing when it comes to the economic development in the coming months.
