The pandemic greatly impeded China’s vital role in supplying consumers, labor force, and goods for North America and Europe. According to the “China Economic Watch” report by KPMG China in the first quarter of 2023, China’s economy grew by 3.0% in 2022. From the quarter-on-quarter perspective, the economic aggregate in the fourth quarter was the same as that in the third quarter.

Looking back at 2021, repeated epidemic outbreaks, a slow real estate market, and accelerated interest rate hikes by the American Federal Reserve caused global economic fluctuations. The country’s economic growth fell short of the expected target proposed during its two sessions due to several major challenges. The good news is that the country’s economic aggregate has reached a new level despite the dropped economic growth rate. During 2022, China’s GDP reached 121 trillion CNY, further strengthening the advantages of its ultra-large-scale market.

Analysts expect China to swiftly emerge from the pandemic in 2023. Macroeconomic policies will prioritize stable growth, accelerating consumption recovery. Simultaneously, the real estate market will also experience a relief in economic pressure. The global market perspective indicates that the slowdown in the inflation rate has eased the Federal Reserve’s pace of interest rate hikes.

China’s 2023 Economic Growth

Recently, Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase, and numerous other international investment institutions raised their forecasts for China’s 2023 economic growth. Many foreign chambers of commerce in China, including the American Chamber of Commerce, the British Chamber of Commerce, and the German Chamber of Commerce, anticipate that China’s adjustment in epidemic prevention policies will facilitate the resumption of domestic and international personnel exchanges and business travel. This adjustment is expected to restore market optimism, making China a top destination for foreign investment. In 2023, expert analysis suggests that China’s economic and social vitality will further unfold as demand gradually recovers and policy effects accumulate.

As lockdown measures lift, China’s economy is positioned to rebound, bolstering global momentum as movement and economic activity resume. According to the latest forecast, China’s economy will grow by 5.2% this year, compared with 3% growth last year. Analysts expect the Chinese economy to contribute a quarter of global economic growth this year.

China’s economic recovery and activities in 2023 will contribute significantly to the American gaming and related industries. During the pandemic lockdown restrictions, the Chinese factory will expedite on-time delivery, reducing instability and uncertainty.
