G20 summit in Antalya: China’s economic growth has decreased in recent years
The summit of the world's 20 leading economies (G20) took place in Antalya (Turkey) on the 15th and 16th of November. Alongside topics such as a common anti-terror strategy and the refugee crisis, the summit also analysed the situation of the world’s economy.
According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) China's economic growth decreased for the fourth year in succession in 2014. The Chinese economy has been an important motor for worldwide GDP growth in the last decade. From 2003 to 2007 China's growth rate reached double figures. However it has dropped since then and amounted to 7.3% in 2014. This still makes China the G20 Member State with the highest growth rate, but the gap to countries such as India and Indonesia has decreased sharply.
