China's industrial profits grow 19.1% y/y in August

·1 min read

SHANGHAI, Sept 27 (Reuters) - Profits at China's industrial firms grew 19.1% year-on-year in August to 612.81 billion yuan, the statistics bureau said on Sunday, as the vast manufacturing sector extended its recovery from heavy coronavirus shutdowns earlier this year.

That compares with a 19.6% increase in July and is the fourth straight month of profit growth.

For January-August, industrial firms' profits fell 4.4% from a year earlier to 3.72 trillion yuan, better than the 8.1% decrease in the first seven months. (Reporting by Luoyan Liu and Engen Tham in Shanghai; Editing by William Mallard)
