Ian Hui, Global Market Strategist at JP Morgan Asset Management, says that the drop in automobile sales in China is a signal of a slower pace of economic growth on the mainland, and the government will most likely step in to boost consumption by measures such as tax cuts and encouraging consumers to buy cars while lowering automobile production costs.
