BEIJING: Chinese consumers continued to show more willingness to spend as well as optimism about personal income growth and employment opportunities thanks to a stabilizing economy, according to a survey.
China's Consumer Confidence Index (CCI) reached 112 points in the second quarter of 2017, up two points from last quarter and the highest score since Q4 2013, according to the latest survey from global market research firm Nielsen. Nielsen's CCI measures perceptions about local job prospects, personal finance and immediate spending intentions. Consumer confidence levels above and below a baseline of 100 indicate degrees of optimism and pessimism, respectively. Nielsen's CCI in Q2 exemplifies the steady growth of China's economy, which expanded 6.9 percent in Q2 of 2017, the same as in Q1.
