BEIJING (AP) — China's economic growth has slowed further in the latest quarter as trade weakened and Beijing clamped down on a credit boom.
The government reported Monday the economy grew by 7.5 percent over a year earlier in the three months ending in June. That was down from 7.7 percent in the previous quarter.
Global demand for China's goods has weakened and regulators are trying to rein in a boom in bank lending that they worry could race out of control.
Growth in industrial production and investment also slowed in the latest quarter.
