China's economic recovery picks up speed after Covid-19 shock –business live
Rolling coverage of the latest economic and financial newsChina’s GDP grew by 6.5% y/y in the fourth quarter, up from 4.9%Economy expanded by 2.3% last year - weakest in decadesFactory growth strong, but consumers more cautious 8.02am GMT China’s economy is now growing faster than before the pandemic, points out the Financial Times:The Chinese economy grew 6.5 per cent in the fourth quarter of 2020, a faster rate than before the coronavirus pandemic that easily outpaced the expected performance of other big countries.Gross domestic product growth for the final quarter beat expectations, according to official data released on Monday, with the Chinese economy expanding 2.3 per cent for the full year as industrial production continued to drive the country’s recovery.“China has more than returned to trend growth,” said Raymond Yeung, chief economist for Greater China at Australia and New Zealand Banking Group. The strong rebound means authorities can “prioritize structural reforms rather than economic reflation” in 2021, he said.The V-shaped recovery was based on successful control of Covid cases and fiscal and monetary stimulus which boosted investment in real estate and infrastructure. Growth was further spurred by overseas consumer demand for medical equipment and work-from-home devices, with exports expanding 3.6% in 2020 compared to the previous year.That made the country the only major economy in the world to eke out an expansion, while others, facing a voracious virus onslaught, contracted. China’s accelerating economic rebound, largely owing to the government’s drastic measures to contain the virus, will help boost the confidence of all other economies where a resurgence of infection cases is still taking tolls. China's #GDP topped 100 tln yuan for first time, reaching 101.59 tln yuan with 2.3% y-o-y expansion in 2020, said NBS official on Mon. It is estimated to account for 17% of global total for the year, with #China expected to become only major economy with positive growth in 2020. pic.twitter.com/hKVeXNXo8N 7.38am GMT Good morning, and welcome to our rolling coverage of the world economy, the financial markets, the eurozone and business.China's economy continues to recover with 2.6% QoQ GDP growth in Q4 and 6.5% annual growth. China is only major country to report positive growth rate in 2020; industrial production has exceeded expectations, while consumption has been a bit slower to recover #macrobond pic.twitter.com/FULzQCI0yGThe national economy recovered steadily, employment and living standards were ensured forcefully, and the main goals and tasks of economic and social development were accomplished better than expectation. Industrial Production rose by an impressive 7.30% as the rest of the world’s insatiable demand for Made in China showed no signs of slowing down. By contrast, domestic data still showed the caution that has been prevalent throughout the year.Retail Sales for December rose 4.60% versus 5.50% expected, a cause for joy in any other country but China. That likely reflects the Covid-19 restrictions in parts of the country and the freezing weather that has sent energy prices soaring.European Opening Calls:#FTSE 6725 -0.16%#DAX 13749 -0.28%#CAC 5592 -0.36%#AEX 650 -0.21%#MIB 22214 -0.75%#IBEX 8223 -0.10%#OMX 1951 -0.21%#STOXX 3587 -0.35%#IGOpeningCall Continue reading...

24-Hour Covid Vaccination Sites 'To Be Piloted In London By End Of January'
24-hours a day coronavirus vaccinations will be piloted in London hospitals by the end of January, according to vaccines minister Nadhim Zahawi.Speaking to Sky News, Zahawi said: “We are going to pilot the 24-hour vaccination, the NHS is going to pilot that in hospitals in London and we will look at how we expand that.”When pressed for when the pilots will start, he said: “By the end of January, absolutely.”But he said 8am-8pm vaccination “works much more conveniently for those who are over 80 and then as you move down the age groups it becomes much more convenient for people to go late at night and in the early hours”.Last week prime minister Boris Johnson said the government would start offering vaccination appointments 24-hours a day seven days a week “as soon as we can”.Speaking during PMQs on Wednesday, Johnson said more details about 24/7 vaccine centres would be set out by health secretary Matt Hancock “in due course”.His statement followed earlier comments from Downing Street that there was no “clamour” from people to be vaccinated around the clock. Zahawi’s comments come as the government announced people aged 70 and over and the clinically extremely vulnerable will begin receiving invitations for coronavirus vaccinations from Monday.On Sunday, foreign secretary Dominic Raab said the target was for every adult in the UK to be offered a first dose of the vaccine by September.More than 3.8 million people in the UK have now received their first dose of a vaccine. Related...

Premier League: 10 talking points from the weekend action
Ole Gunnar Solskjær takes a leaf out of Fergie’s book, Mason Mount channels vintage Lampard and Wolves’ woes go onThere has been recent evidence that Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s adherence to the lessons learned at Sir Alex Ferguson’s feet was wavering. His Manchester United have lately shown something of their own identity, but here Solskjær used a classic Fergie blueprint. Even when United were far superior to Liverpool, Anfield was where the old master’s team would sit deep and try to score on the counter, or from set pieces. It is not difficult to imagine unsung players like Scott McTominay and Fred being handed a Ferguson detail of sweeping up the bits and pieces in midfield in the mould of a Phil Neville or Quinton Fortune. There was to be no unlikely goalscoring hero in the mould of a John O’Shea, Diego Forlan or Gary Pallister. Instead, Sunday will be recalled in future for Anfield’s emptiness, a match endured rather than enjoyed. And Ferguson, even during his imperial period, would probably have been happy with a point.

Athletics’ 66 doping bans showcase a winning way other sports should follow | Sean Ingle
Track and field takes doping seriously, banning 66 Olympic and world medallists since the Athletics Integrity Unit’s launch in 2017And still the headlines come. On Thursday the Rio Olympic 100m hurdles champion, Brianna McNeal, was provisionally suspended and could face an eight-year doping ban for “tampering”. The week before, the 2017 long jump world champion Luvo Manyonga was suspended and could face a four-year ban for whereabouts violations. Both cases are yet to be prosecuted, and the usual caveats about being innocent until proven guilty apply, but the message is increasingly clear. Track and field is a sport which takes anti-doping seriously. Related: Brianna McNeal, Olympic 100m hurdles champion, could face eight-year ban Continue reading...

Chief executive says she and her father want to repair the damage caused by the salary cap scandal and relegationLast year was a grim one for Saracens and, at first glance, 2021 has not started much better. Their 27-26 defeat against Ealing on Saturday may not have involved Sarries’ strongest team but it was a reminder that nothing can be guaranteed as they begin the slow climb back from the salary cap scandal that cost them their Premiership status and bruised their reputation.
