Economists see limited growth boost from China's quarantine cut

Quick Summary AI Powered

June 29, 2022 2:13 PMBEIJING (BLOOMBERG) - China's cut to quarantine times for inbound travelers is boosting sentiment, but the change will likely have a modest impact on the world's second-largest economy unless more dramatic measures are taken.
