Is China a roadmap to recovery? China´s GDP decreased sharply in the first quarter, registering a fall of 35% in annualized terms compared to last quarter of 2019. However, the level of activity was unequal during the period. The February activity shutdown gave space to a sharp recovery in March, as the restrictive measures were relaxed. Production and demand increased fast in March. As expected, retail sales report showed some sectors lag the recovery, specially restaurants, tourism and non-essentials, as clothing and durable goods. The resumption in domestic activity should continue in the second quarter, while there will be a downward pressure coming from the export sector, due to the expected collapse of global demand.
