BEIJING -- China's economic growth rate rebounded to 3.9% on the year in the quarter ended September, official statistics showed on Monday, after the release was delayed last week.

The country's gross domestic product was sustained by higher fixed-assets investment and consumer spending, according to data revealed by the National Bureau of Statistics. The result beat the 0.4% growth seen in the second quarter, as well as a median forecast for the third period of 3.2%, projected in a Nikkei survey of economists.
