The Chinese economy grew by 3.2 percent year-on-year in the second quarter of 2020, rebounding from a record 6.8 percent contraction in the previous three-month period and beating market consensus of a 2.5 percent expansion. The country became the first major economy to report growth following the coronavirus pandemic, as factories and stores reopened following months of coronavirus-induced restrictions.

Considering the first half of the year, the economy contracted by 1.6 percent over the same period of 2019.
