China's economy will grow by 10.3% in the first half of 2006, then slow marginally for a full-year expansion of 10%, the central bank said in a report published June 26.

At the same time, inflation will climb slowly, registering 1.3% in the first six months of the year and 1.7% for the 12 months, according to the report, from the People's Bank of China's research bureau.

The forecasts, released over the weekend and published in the Beijing Morning Post on June 26, come despite a stream of government measures aimed at slowing the economy, following growth of 10.3% in the first quarter.

China's economy has showed few signs of responding to the cooling measures, such as an interest rate hike in April and policies targeted at curbing investment in the property sector.

China is the world's fastest growing major economy, with expansion fueled mainly by investment and exports. It grew 9.9% in 2005.
