China's factory output and retail sales grew faster than expected in November, while fixed-asset investment was in-line with forecasts, adding to growing signs of stabilization in the world's second-biggest economy.
Factory output grew 6.2 percent from a year earlier, slightly better than analysts' forecasts and October's reading.
Retail sales climbed 10.8 percent, the fastest pace since December 2015 and beating expectations for a 10.1 percent rise.
After a rocky start to the year, China's economy has performed better than expected and looks set to hit Beijing's 6.5 to 7 percent growth target as increased government spending and a sizzling housing market spur a construction boom.
Private investment remains weak, however, leaving economic growth more reliant on a steady stream of government spending, while the property market is showing signs of fatigue, raising fears that this year's momentum will not be sustainable.
