China’s economic activity posted a broad-based recovery in October, paving the way for a faster economic rebound in the final quarter of the year.

Both investment and consumer spending grew at faster year-over-year rates in October than the month before, while industrial production, the first sector to emerge from this year’s coronavirus-induced slump, remained solid.

Industrial output, which has led the nation’s economic recovery in recent months, rose 6.9% in October from a year earlier, on par with September’s pace and higher than market expectations for a 6.5% increase, according to data released Monday by the National Bureau of Statistics.
