March 11 (Bloomberg) -- Louis Kuijs, chief China economist at Royal Bank of Scotland in Hong Kong, talks about the outlook for China's economy.
China’s industrial output had the weakest start to a year since 2009 and lending and retail sales growth slowed, toughening challenges for a new leadership that wants to narrow the gap between rich and poor. Consumer prices climbed a more-than-estimated 3.2 percent in February from a year earlier. Kuijs speaks with Zeb Eckert on Bloomberg Television's "First Up." (Source: Bloomberg)
