Asian markets recover after China’s GDP growth fails to meet already low expectations


Asian markets recovered from early losses on Monday, as China posted its weakest quarterly GDP growth in at least 27 years.

Monday's data showed that the world's second largest economy expanded by 6.2% over the previous year, down from 6.4% in the previous quarter. The result was the slowest since the first quarter of 1992, when the earliest quarterly data was available, according to Dow Jones Newswires, and lower than the 6.3% average forecast of a Wall Street Journal survey of 14 economists.
