China is the world’s second largest economy with a nominal gross domestic product of $14.1 trillion in 2019. In order to prevent a second Covid-19 wave, China has tightened coronavirus restrictions in Beijing and other cities where further outbreaks have occurred. The People’s Bank of China has launched a $79 billion stimulus effort to help companies stricken by the virus. The central bank also lowered the reserve requirement ratio by one percent while cutting the interest rates on its relending and rediscounting facilities in July. Economists expect China’s real GDP growth to be only one percent in 2020. Chinese GDP was down -6.8% during the first half of 2020. Analysts estimate at least an additional 22 million workers will lose their jobs in 2020, pushing up the Chinese unemployment rate to around 10%. Around 250 million workers are expected to experience significant wage cuts between 10 to 50% this year.
