According to Chairman of Morgan Stanley Asia, Stephen Roach, China's growth may slowdown by mid 2010 as the effect of the 4 trillion yuan stimulus package fades and as overseas demand wanes resulting in lower exports.

Estimates for the outlook of the economy vary from several analysts where Roach believes the economy will be able to hit the 8 percent target by the end of the year. Caijing Magazine said that growth in the second half may top the 9 percent mark and result in China to reach as much as 8.5% this year. However according to Bloomberg News Survey, economic growth may reach 8.9 percent during the third quarter.
