China's fixed-asset investment up 5.8% in first 10 months

China's fixed-asset investment rose 5.8 percent year-on-year in the first 10 months of this year, with investment in high-tech industries continuing to log rapid growth, data from the National Bureau of Statistics showed Tuesday.

Fixed-asset investment from January to October totaled 47.15 trillion yuan ($6.7 trillion), the bureau said in a statement.

The growth slowed from a 5.9-percent increase posted in the first three quarters of the year. In October, the investment picked up 0.12 percent from September.

During the Jan-Oct period, fixed-asset investment from the private sector increased 1.6 percent from a year earlier to 25.84 trillion yuan.

Investment in infrastructure and manufacturing gained 8.7 percent and 9.7 percent year-on-year during the period, respectively. Investment in property development went down 8.8 percent year-on-year in the period.

China's high-tech industries continued to see a stellar expansion of fixed-asset investment in the first 10 months, with that in the high-tech manufacturing and services sectors jumping by 23.6 percent and 14 percent year-on-year, respectively, NBS data showed.

Specifically, investment in the sub-sectors of electronic and communication equipment manufacturing and research and design services soared 28.7 percent and 22.5 percent, respectively.

China has rolled out a series of pro-investment measures this year. For instance, local governments nationwide have expedited the use of special-purpose bonds to catalyze investment.

Over 3.54 trillion yuan worth of new special-purpose local government bonds were issued in the first three quarters of this year, data from the Ministry of Finance showed.
