Growth in China's manufacturing sector slowed more than expected in January to an 8-month low in the face of a cooling property market and tighter pollution rules that have curtailed factory output. The data, which provides global investors with their first look at business conditions in China at the start of 2018, reinforced the view that the economy is beginning to gradually lose steam after growing by a better-than-expected 6.9 percent last year.

India has been ranked sixth in the list of wealthiest countries with the total wealth of USD 8,230 billion, while the United States topped the chart, says a report. The report further noted that India was the best-performing wealth market globally in 2017 as its total wealth swelled from USD 6,584 billion in 2016 to USD 8,230 billion in 2017, registering a 25 percent growth.
