China Sees Strong Industrial, Retail Growth in November

China posted better-than-expected economic data for November on Monday, giving further breathing space to Beijing after the country agreed a partial trade deal with the US last week.

A truce in the lingering US-China trade war resulted in a pared-down "phase one" deal announced on Friday, although it has yet to be signed.

China's industrial production increased by 6.2 percent in November year-on-year, up from 4.7 percent last month and the highest level in six months.

There was also positive news for the country's retailers, with total retail sales up by 8.0 percent in November, a boost from 7.2 percent growth in October.
