Demand for gold from top consumer China will remain strong at around 900-1,000 tonnes next year, near 2015 levels, although a weaker appetite for jewellery and slowing economy could curb purchases, an official of the World Gold Council said.
He also expects demand in 2016 to be at around 900-1,000 tonnes. China's gold demand reached 984.5 tonnes in 2015.
