    China Economic Panel - August 2015.

    The CEP Indicator, which reflects the expectations of international financial market experts regarding China’s macroeconomic development over the coming twelve months, has deteriorated significantly in the current survey period (August 17-31, 2015). It has dropped from 8.8 to minus 6.0 points. Interestingly, the change in sentiment is not yet reflected in GDP forecasts. The growth figures of 6.9 per cent for 2015 and 6.7 per cent for 2016 are strikingly similar to the forecasts provided by the government. Very likely, the estimates included in the CEP Indicator are much more realistic, since there is no government equivalent to this indicator.
