Beijing: The World Bank on Wednesday boosted its growth forecast for China to 10% for 2010, but warned that global tensions over trade imbalances could cast a shadow over the rosy economic outlook.
The bank based its new prediction on the “still surprisingly strong” 9.6% growth in gross domestic product seen in the third quarter, and said the prospects for the world’s second-largest economy “remain sound”.
The bank forecast 2011 growth of a scaled-back but still robust 8.7%.
