NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Oct 22, 2012) - New data released the last Thursday showed China's economy grew at a rate of 7.4 percent in the third quarter. Although a decline from the previous quarter it was a much smaller drop off, signaling the worst may be over for the world's second largest economy. "The expectation now is that China's economy has bottomed out and we can look forward to better results in the fourth quarter," said Francis Lun, managing director of Lyncean Holdings in Hong Kong.

Other recently released September data has also supported the notion that China's economic recovery is underway. Industrial production has increased 9.2 percent from a year-ago, and 3 percent from August, while retail sales have gained 14.2 percent from 2011.

"In the grand context of a global recession, this is an amazingly good job for a country that is so dependent on exports to the global economy," says Bosworth. "I think we are in a world where China's growth is going to moderate and I think it will stay in the range of about 7% to 8%."
