Chinese industrial profits are continuing to fall.
According to government data, profits slipped 2.9% in the year to July, the largest annual decline since the beginning of the year.
In June, profits slipped by a smaller 0.3%.
In the first seven months of 2015, profits have fallen 1% compared to the same period a year earlier.
