China's gross domestic product is forecast to rise 10.8 percent in the second quarter of 2007, while the consumer price index is expected to gain 3 percent over the period, the State Information Center has said.

This would bring the GDP growth rate for the first half of this year to 11 percent, the center said in a report published by the China Securities Journal.

The CPI growth rate for the first half would be 2.9 percent, the report said.

The centre is a research body under the National Development and Reform Commission, China's top economic planning agency.
