China's Economic Growth Slows, Shadow Lending Grows

A recent report published by New York-based research company China Beige Book (CBB) revealed that China's economic growth is faltering, despite the government's 'mini-stimulus' strategies launched in May, which included a more relaxed approach to lending and a wave of infrastructure investment projects. The CBB report, which is compiled from surveys of more than 2,100 firms around China, noted that less than 20 percent of the firms surveyed borrowed in the third quarter, whether it be from the bond market, banks or shadow finance firms, which is a drop of 29 percent when compared to the third quarter of 2013. The report also shows that capital expenditures have dipped to the lowest level since the CBB survey began in 2012.

China's e-Commerce Market Booming

As Chinese e-commerce company Alibaba prepares for its IPO through the New York Stock Exchange, the Dalian Wanda group in China announced on Friday that it would be entering into an e-commerce joint venture with Baidu and Tencent Holdings to be registered in Hong Kong. Wanda will own 70 percent of the new venture with Baidu and Tencent each holding 15 percent. The aim is to tap into China's e-commerce market, which is reportedly the largest in the world and currently dominated by Alibaba. The collaboration between the three companies will create the world's biggest online-to-offline (O2O) e-commerce platform, where people use their mobile devises to locate and buy goods and services, often while they are in or nearby the physical store.
