    BEIJING (Sputnik) – The figures, nevertheless, have beaten economists’ estimates for 6.8 percent in the three months of the year through September.

    "Specifically, the year-on-year growth was 7.0 percent for the first quarter, 7.0 percent for the second quarter and 6.9 percent for the third quarter," the bureau said in a report.
