China's economy is picking up steam as the country continues to steadily recover from the economic turmoil caused by the coronavirus pandemic. The world's second largest economy expanded 4.9% in the July-to-September quarter compared to a year ago, according to new Chinese government statistics. It's a V shaped recovery, according to Dr. Meredith Crowley. She was interviewed on BBC Radio 4's Today programme, and said retails sales are up, but only by 3.2%. However, the worry is that the virus could come back, and that would slow down China's economy again.
