BEIJING (Reuters) – China’s stable economic performance should continue in the second half of this year and the overheated property market has cooled somewhat, a spokesman of National Bureau of Statistics said on Monday.

China created 8.55 million new jobs in the January-July period, and the July survey-based unemployment rate in major cities was under 5 percent, Mao Shengyong told a news conference.
