HONG KONG -- Chinese gross domestic product grew 6.2% in the April-June quarter, according to an averaged forecast of economists who specialize in China as surveyed by Nikkei and Nikkei QUICK News.

The expected pace would represent a slowdown from the 6.4% in the January-March period, which remained unchanged from the previous quarter.
