The China which even grew at a good rate during the financial crisis showed lowest growth rate since 1990 last year which was 7.7 percent in 2013.  Zhou Hao, the economist based in Shanghai said that the current environment for the growth is not ideal. The economists working for ANZ further added that the reason behind it is weak progress in the manufacturing and low property rates.

The industrial production and retail sales are all time low according the statistics released by the government. The real estate sector is suffering as well. The world’s biggest player in the goods sector has also suffered a backlash in exports and imports last month and sector is facing many difficulties. The political leadership looks very welcoming of this weaker growth prospect. They consider economy more stable and consumer driven now.
