China’s stabilizing economy will likely provide a notable boost to the Eurozone in the coming months, according to economists at Goldman Sachs.

The world’s second largest economy’s annualised growth rate stabilized at 6.4 percent in the first quarter with key manufacturing PMI indicators returning to expansion territory above 50.00.
