Retail sales were up 10.3 percent on year, beating expectations for 10.2 percent and up from 10.1 percent in the previous month. Chinese headline inflation was held down in September by pass through from the stronger yuan, which made imported pork feed cheaper in yuan terms, lowering the price of pork, which fell 12.4 percent from a year earlier in September.

Infrastructure investment, which accounts for more than 20 percent of total FAI, surged 19.8 percent year on year during the period.
