"The U.S. remarks are groundless. They are not the Chinese economic authorities, but they always say things about China's economic situation, completely groundless. In fact, the Chinese economy has maintained steady growth with positive momentum. The protectionist policies and bullying measures of the U.S. government will have some impacts on the Chinese economy, but we can completely overcome them. We are confident and capable of withstanding any external risks and shocks."

All countries want to share the dividends from China's development and achieve mutual beneficial and win-win results. If someone is reluctant to do business with China, others will naturally come and fill the vacancy. China has a complete industrial system, increasingly strong innovation capabilities for science and technology, the world's largest middle-income group, and a huge domestic consumer and investment market. We have confidence in China's economic outlook."

Storyline


China's economy has maintained steady growth with good momentum and the country has full confidence and capability to withstand any external risks and shocks, said a spokesman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry on Wednesday.

Geng Shuang, the spokesman, made the comments in response to U.S. President Trump's remarks at different occasions that China’s economy is not very good and it is very eager to strike a trade deal with the United States.

"The U.S. remarks are groundless. They are not the Chinese economic authorities, but they always say things about China's economic situation, completely groundless. In fact, the Chinese economy has maintained steady growth with positive momentum. The protectionist policies and bullying measures of the U.S. government will have some impacts on the Chinese economy, but we can completely overcome them. We are confident and capable of withstanding any external risks and shocks," the spokesman said.

In the first quarter of this year, China's economy grew at a faster-than-expected 6.4 percent year-on-year. The domestic demand was the primary driver, with consumption contributing 76.2 percent to China's economic growth last year.

In April, the World Economic Outlook issued by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) revised up by 0.1 percentage point for the 2019 growth projection for China to 6.3 percent. China is the only major economy in the world to have the upward revision.

In the first four months of this year, China's foreign trade climbed by 4.3 percent year on year to 9.51 trillion yuan (about 1.41 trillion U.S. dollars) and its trade with the European Union and the ASEAN countries expanded largely.

"China is accelerating its transformation from a large trading country to a strong trading country. All countries want to share the dividends from China's development and achieve mutual beneficial and win-win results. If someone is reluctant to do business with China, others will naturally come and fill the vacancy. China has a complete industrial system, increasingly strong innovation capabilities for science and technology, the world's largest middle-income group, and a huge domestic consumer and investment market. We have confidence in China's economic outlook," Geng said.
