China 2015 growth slows to weakest in 25 years

China’s gross domestic product growth has slowed to 6.9 per cent in 2015, the weakest annual rate in a quarter of a century for the world’s second-largest economy, a mounting concern for global investors.
The figure was the slowest in the People’s Republic since the 3.8 per cent of 1990, a year after the bloody Tiananmen Square crackdown rocked the country and isolated it internationally.
The performance of China, a major driver of the world economy, is a crucial concern for global investors, and its fourth-quarter growth also slowed to 6.8 per cent.
