|BEIJING Authentic John Moore Jersey , July 17 (Xinhua) -- China's economy continued steady expansion in the first half of this year with GDP up 6.9 percent year on year to about 38.2 trillion yuan (5.6 trillion U.S. dollars), data from the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) showed Monday.
The reading is well above the government's target for the year of 6.5 percent.
In the second quarter, GDP held steady at 6.9 percent year on year, flat from the first quarter.
China's economy is operating within a reasonable range, maintaining stable, coordinated and sustainable development, said NBS spokesperson Xing Zhihong, "laying a solid foundation for achieving the annual target."
On a quarterly basis, the economy grew 1.7 percent in the second quarter from the previous quarter.
Industrial output expanded 6.9 percent year on year in the first six months, against 6 percent in the same period last year. Retail sales of consumer goods grew 10.4 percent year on year, up from 10 percent for the first quarter.
Fixed-asset investment grew 8.6 percent year on year in the first half, down 0.6 percentage points from the first quarter, while private sector investment was up 7.2 percent to 17 trillion yuan, accounting for 60.7 percent of the total.
Xing said the steady growth was the result of progresses in supply-side structural reform and new development concepts.
The service sector, already accounting for 54.1 percent of the overall economy, expanded 7.7 percent year on year in the first half, outpacing a 3.5 percent increase in primary industries and 6.4 percent in secondary industries, according to NBS data.
Industrial capacity utilization stood at 76.4 percent in the first half, up 3.4 percentage points from a year ago.
In terms of de-stocking in the property market, the floor space of unsold homes were down 9.6 percent at the end of June.
Some 7.35 million new jobs were created in China's urban regions from January to June, 180,000 more than the same period last year, while per capita disposable income grew 8.8 percent.
China aims to create more than 11 million jobs this year, 1 million more than last year's target.
Xing also warned that there are still uncertainties and instabilities internationally, while domestic long-term structural contradictions remain prominent.
Looking ahead, Xing said more positive changes are on the way, and that the firming will be consolidated by improvement in the real economy and expansion of both external and domestic demand.
Nomura Securities said in a report after Monday's data release that given the data, it is raising the forecast for the Q3 growth to 6.8 percent from the previous 6.6 percent, and the annual growth forecast to 6.8 percent from 6.7 percent.
The forecast of a gradual growth slowdown due to a weakening property sector and the possible moderation of domestic demand, as well as uncertainties over external demand remained valid, said the report.

You may already have heard of pit bikes. But how much do you really know about them, and how good are they?
There are plenty of different types of motorbikes both on and off the roads nowadays. But more recently a new type of bike has started to make the headlines. You may have seen some pit bikes already without even realising what they actually are. But as you will see, the name comes from their original use, which is far from what they are used for today.
Dirt bike racing has long been a popular pastime and event, especially in the US. Originally a small Honda bike was commonly used to get around the pits at these races. They were small, efficient, quick and excellent at getting from A to B in a hurry. But eventually a new breed of motorcycle evolved from this Honda model, and this turned out to be the logically named pit bikes.
One thing that really stands out about these bikes is their size. They are typically still quite small, just as that original Honda was. They also have small tyres and the wheels are some distance away from the rest of the bike. This may look more noticeable on some bikes than on others. But they all have great suspension, ready for tackling the kinds of terrain they are built for.
Pit bikes have gone from being used as purely a method to get from A to B, to having a whole array of races built around them. Pit bike racing is becoming more popular as time goes on, and more and more riders give the sport a go. They are more popular in the US, where the whole thing began, but the UK is also getting in on the act.
If you are considering buying this kind of bike, it is important to look around to see how many different ones are available. The smallest and most basic of models is usually the 90cc model, and they go up to around 160ccs as well. Think about how much power you would like to have ? and how much you can cope with ? and choose your bike accordingly.
The good news is that you can invest in your first choice of the many pit bikes available from just a few hundred pounds. It all depends on the model you get and whether it is a limited edition or not though. Some will also be bigger in terms of the power they offer the rider, and you can obviously expect to spend more on these bikes than on the more basic 90cc models.
If you can, get a ride on someone else?s bike before you choose. Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys China NCAA Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Online Jerseys Online Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Online Jerseys Free Shipping
