BEIJING, Oct 30: China’s economy would be at least 3.7 trillion yuan ($610 billion) bigger than Beijing thinks if the country’s local government statistics were to be believed, state media reported Wednesday.

The Economic Information Daily tallied up gross domestic product (GDP) data from 28 of mainland China’s 31 provincial-level authorities, totalling 42.4 trillion yuan for the first nine months of the year.

But the figure for the whole country, already announced by Beijing, is 3.7 trillion yuan lower.—AFP
