China Economy: Hard or Soft Landing?

China will release a raft of economic data for the month of May on Tuesday, including consumer and producer prices, industrial production and retail sales numbers.

Markets will be watching the data to see whether China is winning its fight against inflation or whether fiscal and monetary authorities will have to crack down further.

Last month, China's purchasing managers' indexfell to a 9-month low, raising concerns about the country's growth prospects. Trade figures on Friday showed a mixed bag. Imports were strong, but exports eased as global demand slowed.

Beijing has been trying to engineer a more balanced growth trajectory after years of double-digit growth that has brought with it rising inflationary pressures.

But the fear is that Chinese policymakers might overstep, leading to a hard landing for the economy.
