• China's Fixed-asset Investment (FAI)

    China's fixed-asset investment (FAI) has picked up pace for a third straight month, official data showed, an encouraging sign amid increasing downward pressures on the wider economy. The FAI climbed 5.9 percent year-on-year in the first 11 months of 2018, quickening from the 5.7-percent growth in Jan-Oct, the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) said Friday in an online statement.
