“It follows an upward-revised 0.3% m/m gain in July. The decline was driven primarily by the agriculture and fisheries sectors, which were a combined 0.5ppt drag on growth in the month, reversing July gains. Today’s report leaves the 3m/m growth rate for Mainland GDP at 0.6% to August, and we expect growth to remain strong through the remainder of 2018.”
