Coming Up – Chinese GDP, Interest Rates in Indonesia, SK & SA and EU-Canada Summit

Stockholm (Ekonamik) – Following this week’s BoC meeting in Canada, next week will be relatively calm. Among central bank,  meetings will come from emerging markets Indonesia, South Korea and South Africa.

Data wise, China’s release of GDP figures for the second quarter will be dominant. “GDP growth is expected to decline to 6.2% year-on-year, down from 6.4% in the first quarter. This is consistent with the official 2019 target of 6-6.5%, and compares with actual growth of 6.6% last year,” said Silvia Dall’Angelo Senior Economist at Hermes Investment Management in her preview of the data release.

A range of inflation and unemployment figures will also be published for other countries. Politically, the focus will be on the EU-Canada summit as well as on the G7 meeting.
