Updated: 2007-10-23 11:59

China will release third-quarter GDP and other economic data for September at 10 a.m. Thursday , two days later than originally scheduled, the information office of the State Council said on Tuesday.

Economists polled by Reuters expect annual Q3 GDP growth of 11.5 percent, down from 11.9 percent in the second quarter.

A planning agency official said last week that the pace would be quite close to the first-half growth rate of 11.5 percent.
