China reported a raft of unexpectedly weak July data on Wednesday, including a surprise drop in industrial output growth to a more than 17-year low, underlining widening economic cracks as the trade war with the United States intensifies. Industrial output grew 4.8% in July from a year earlier, data from the National Bureau of Statistics showed on Wednesday, lower than the most bearish forecast in a Reuters poll. Analysts had forecast industrial output growth would slow to 5.8%, from June's 6.3% growth, amid weakened demand at home and abroad.
