World Bank lowers China forecast

BBC Wednesday, 18 March 2009
==================================================
The World Bank has cut its prediction for China’s economic growth in 2009 from 7.5% to 6.5%, saying it could not “escape the impact of global weakness”.

Chinese government think tank this month forecast first-quarter growth would slow to 6.5%, from a 6.8% pace in the fourth quarter last year.

China is heavily dependent on the global economy that buys its imports. But as recession grips the US and Europe – which are among its largest customers – demand has fallen, resulting in factories closing and millions of people losing their jobs.
The World Bank warned that the drop in trade was set to hurt investment and job creation in China.
