Under the situation of the global economic growth slowing down in 2023, China’s economy will buck the trend, with its real GDP growth expected to reach 5 percent to 6 percent, Wang added.
The country’s consumption growth is expected to improve significantly in 2023.
China’s consumer spending will grow 8 percent to 12 percent, the total retail sales of consumer goods will increase 7 percent to 11 percent in 2023, said Wu Chaoming.

Wang Qing pointed that the consumption recovery will be the main force to boost China’s economy rebound in 2023.
