China’s capital Beijing’s gross regional domestic product growth between January and September was 6.7 percent year-on-year, the municipal bureau of statistics announced on Oct 22.

Data released this morning showed the city’s GDP in the first three quarters of 2018 was about 2.15 trillion yuan ($310 billion).

The growth was 0.1 percentage points lower than it was during the first half of the year, according to the bureau.

Fang Xiaodan, spokesperson for the Beijing investigation team under the National Bureau of Statistics, said during the conference the per capita disposable income in Beijing for the first nine months increased 8.9 percent year-on-year to 46,426 yuan, a result of multiple preferential policies carried out by the municipal government.
