The administration said that Changan Ford since

e 2013 has violated the Anti-Monopoly Law by setting up minimum resale prices for its downstream dealers in Chongqing.

This impinged on downstream dealers’ pricing autonomy and excluded a

nd limited competition within the brand, said the administration, adding that this pra

ctice weakened competition between brands and encroached on consumers’ legitimate rights.

In accordance with the Anti-Monopoly Law, the market regulator fined Changan Ford four percent of its past -year sales in Chongqing.

The administration said it will continue to enforce the Anti-Monopoly L

aw, ensure fair competition in the market, create a sound business environment, pro

mote high-quality economic development, and protect consumers’ legitimate interests.

tariffs by the US on solar imports, as well as the country’s anti

dumping and anti-subsidy measures, have largely reduced China’s export to the country.

Photovoltaic modules export to India also slumped 24.4 percent to 1.81 GW in the first quarter, as the Indian government ordere

China’s top five photovoltaic modules exporters in value in the first quarter were Jinko Solar, J

A Solar, Trina Solar, Canadian Solar, and Longi, taking up 12.8, 8.6, 8.3, 7.4, and 6.7 percent, resp

ectively, of total export value. Export volume of the top 12 exporters took up 65 percent of total export, added the report.

The report projected that China’s photovoltaic modules capacity will furth

er expand 8.5 percent to 83 GW this year, with nearly 50 GW exported to the overseas market.

More comprehensive and well-targeted policy respon

ses are needed to tackle the current growth slowdown,” Elliot Harris, UN chief economist and assi

stant secretary-general for economic development, said Tuesday at a news conference. “It is increasingly clear that policies to pro

mote sustainable development will need to look beyond GDP growth and identify new and more robust measures of

economic performance that appropriately reflect the costs of inequality, insecurity and climate change.”

In response to slowing growth and subdued inflation, major central banks have eased their monetary policy stances. The recent mo

netary policy shifts have helped to stabilize global financial markets and capital flows to emerging economies.

However, the report cautions that a more protracted period of monetary accommodation could exacerbate fina

ncial imbalances, including further fueling debt accumulation and raising medium-term risks to financial stability.

Earnings growth may sustain at a rather high speed

Wang Yang, an analyst with Soochow Securities based in Suzhou, Jia

ngsu province, said that apart from the economic recovery underpinned by su

pportive policies, cyclical factors also imply that earnings growth will continue to recover in the rest of the year.

According to Wang, the current profit cycle of A-share companies started from 2

016 and should end with recovery this year, as the cycles usually last for 12 to 14 quarters.

This year’s gradual recovery in earnings growth could help the A-share market to withstan

d external uncertainties, said Yan Xiang, an analyst with Shenzhen-based Guosen Securities.

“It is quite different from 2018 when earnings growth of most companies deteriorated. Earn

ings growth, a determinant of the market trend, is likely to be on the recovery path,” Yan said in a note.
