In summary the update concluded:

above target rate;
▪ Industrial production spiked as steel production picked up;
investment growth beat expectations as property investment
surprisingly picked up and private investment rebounded; exports
remained solid;
▪ However, ongoing financial deleveraging and fiscal tightening
started to weigh on liquidity, leading to the central bank’s subtle
policy adjustment.
