Bejing –

China’s economic growth fell to 3 per cent last year under pressure from antivirus controls and a real estate slump but is gradually reviving after restrictions that kept millions of people at home were lifted.

Growth of the world’s second largest economy slid to 2.9 per cent over a year earlier in December from the previous month’s 3.9 per cent, government data showed Tuesday.

Forecasters say activity is reviving but wary consumers are returning only gradually to shopping malls and restaurants amid a surge in COVID-19 infections. The government says the peak of that wave appears to have passed.

In November, growth in real domestic product was driven by the public sector, transportation and warehousing and finance and insurance.
