China saw a rebound in inflation for the first time in five months as well as the slowest growth pace for industrial output in three years in August.
China's fiscal revenues grew 4.2 percent year-on-year to 786.3 billion yuan ($124 billion ) in August, the Ministry of Finance said Tuesday.
China's new yuan-denominated lending in August rose to 703.9 billion yuan ($111.7 billion), an increase of 155.5 billion yuan from a year earlier.
China's retail sales rose 13.2 percent year-on-year in August, 0.1 percentage points higher than the growth rate in July.
China's fixed-asset investment increased 20.2 percent year-on-year in the first eight months of the year, 0.2 percentage points slower than the growth of the January-July period.
China's exports improved slightly in August, indicating prolonged weakness in the global economy, data from General Administration of Customs showed.
Industrial production and investment have continued to falter in China, dimming hopes for a robust recovery in the world's second-largest economy this year.
