Net profit was 104.32 bil­lion yuan ($16.3 bil­lion) in the first six months, against 104.03 bil­lion yuan for the same pe­riod last year, it said in a state­ment to the Hong Kong stock ex­change Fri­day. The bank, which has tra­di­tion­ally served ru­ral ar­eas of China, said down­ward pres­sure on the world.
