China's FAI posted a strong rebound in the first quarter of 2021 with continued improvement in investment structure.
The FAI went up 25.6 percent year on year to 9.6 trillion yuan in the first three months, according to the National Bureau of Statistics.
The double-digit growth was largely driven by a low base of comparison early last year when Covid-19 paralysed economic activities in China.
Compared with the 2019 level, FAI growth came in at 6 per cent.
FAI includes capital spent on infrastructure, property, machinery and other physical assets. - Xinhua
