FROM THE PRESS: China’s exports are expected to maintain a high rate of growth in Q3, while imports recover further, the China Securities Journal reported following July's trade data. China’s low-priced industrial products are seizing greater global market share, with high inflation overseas putting the wider global manufacturing sector under pressure. The significant increase in exports to the EU, influenced by tight energy supply, provided a key boost to exports in July, the newspaper said, citing Wang Qing, chief macro analyst at Golden Credit Rating. External demand is still robust, especially when it comes to automobiles and clothing, and the adverse impact of overseas interest rate hikes is not yet obvious in the data, the newspaper said, citing analysts.
China’s foreign exchange reserves will remain stable, supported by the steady recovery of the Chinese economy and a likely rise in the U.S. dollar index, alongside a move higher in U.S. and European bond prices, the China Securities Journal reported, citing analysts. China’s FX reserves rose by USD32.8 billion to USD3.1 trillion at the end of July, marking the largest monthly increase since January 2021. Bond yields across the major economies fell in July amid a further weakening of expectations surrounding broader economic growth, while major stock markets rebounded from previous lows. These factors combined to push up China’s FX reserves, the newspaper said, citing Wen Bin, chief economist at Minsheng Bank. China's balance of payments surplus also drove up reserves slightly, Wen added.
Over 80,000 tourists are stranded in the popular resort city of Sanya on China’s tropical Hainan island after the city announced a temporary lockdown to curb the spread of Covid-19, Quanshang China, the WeChat account of Securities Times, reported late Sunday.

Hainan rolled out widespread nucleic acid testing on Sunday, as this round of the pandemic spilled over to four other provinces, the newspaper noted.
