China's economy in the I quarter of 2013, year on year increase of only 7.7%, which was lower than the forecasts of experts. From January to March, China's GDP reached 11.885 trillion yuan. The growth was weaker than in the same period last year, while the economy grew by 7.9%. Recall that by the end of the year the government forecast a GDP growth of 7.5%.

In general, the published data were worse than forecasts of experts who still waiting for surprises. And I must say, were the prerequisites for this. The economy showed an increase in liquidity was also recorded growth in exports. Not pleased investors and other data. Thus, industrial production in March, which added 8.9% against the forecast of 10.1%. Almost in line with expectations but retail sales, which grew by 12.6%.

It is worth noting that the foreign exchange market in China today set a record. The People's Bank of China fixed the yuan to the dollar at around 6.2452 - with up to 2005, when the revaluation of the Chinese currency.

As was previously known, the international gold reserves in China by the end of 2012 rose to $ 3.3 trillion, surpassing thus, the cost of the gold reserves of all countries in the world by half.
