Following a challenging first quarter with a GDP decline of 6.8% y/y, the Chinese economy rebounded in Q2 2020, recording a 3.2% y/y growth. The upturn was largely attributed to effective measures on pandemic prevention and control, as well as to regulatory policies encouraging investment and business recovery. Nevertheless, retail sales declined by 3.9% y/y in the second quarter to RMB 9,368bn. The weaker sales were caused by the impact of COVID-19 and the social distancing measures, which affected sales of physical retailers and catering, in particular. However, the pandemic provided a boost to e-commerce. Total online retail sales of consumer goods and services rose by 13.8% y/y to RMB 2,933bn in Q2 2020. Online sales of consumer goods alone surged by 22.4% y/y to RMB 2,495bn. Fresh food and grocery were some of the fastest growing e-commerce segments in the period and attracted new groups of consumers, such as elderly people, who previously used to shop at traditional supermarkets.
