GDP Figures of Local Gov'ts Soar Past Beijing's Yet Again

Every reporting area claims a growth rate for first half that is higher than the 7.6 percent figure for the country
By staff reporter Xing Yun

(Beijing) – The release of first-half economic growth figures by local governments shows that a gap between national and local GDP figures continues.

As of July 28, 30 provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions have released their first-half economic figures. The only exception was the northwestern province of Qinghai.

Caixin found that the total GDP of the 30 regions was 27.96 trillion yuan. A preliminary national GDP reading released by the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) on July 15 was 24.8 trillion yuan.
