Reuters news agency recently cited Chinese government data as saying that the country’s slow economic growth rate tended to worsen in August, when `industrial production growth was at its lowest level.`

Despite the above unfavorable figures, Chinese Prime Minister Li Keqiang affirmed that China is still on track to achieve a growth rate of 6 – 6.5% this year.
