October 17, 2011

Oct. 18 (Bloomberg) -- China’s fixed-asset investment excluding rural households climbed 24.9 percent in the first nine months of the year from a year earlier, the National Bureau of Statistics said on its website today. That compared with the 24.8 percent median estimate in a Bloomberg News survey of 19 economists and a 25 percent gain in the first eight months of the year.

In real terms, investment rose 16.9 percent in the first nine months, the bureau said.
