China's quarterly economy growth sinks to 6%, a 26-year low
BEIJING (AP) — China's economic growth slowed to 6% over a year ago in the latest quarter, its lowest level in at least 26 years, amid a tariff war with Washington and weakening domestic consumer demand.
The figure reported Friday was down from the previous quarter's 6.2%.
Chinese trade has suffered from U.S. tariff hikes in a fight over Beijing's trade surplus and technology plans.
