BEIJING : Economic growth in China in 2007 will drop to single digits for the first time in five years, state media reported Wednesday, citing a senior government researcher.

The world's fourth-largest economy is expected to expand by nine percent this year, the China Daily said, citing Liu Shijin, deputy director of the Development Research Center, a think tank attached to the Cabinet.

This is down from 10.7 percent in 2006, the fourth consecutive year when China saw double-digit growth.

Liu predicted China would probably see growth rates of seven to eight percent in the coming decade, supported by the real estate and automotive sectors, the paper said on its website.

The paper did not provide a reason for the moderate slowdown in the economy beginning this year.

It seems like we in Europe can dream about such investments in Electronic manufacturing plants. it is a pitty that there are no such big projects in Europe.


I am worried about the future of the economic situation in Europe especially in the world of electronics. When there a such huge investments in Asia the next investmenst are in R&D investments for Asia. So in long term everything is moving to those countries. They will be the leaders of tomorrow's technology.


Come on and stand up you over there European electronic wonder!

According to iSuppli the domestic OEM companies accounted for 23 percent of the Chinese electronics manufacturing in 2005 while foreign multinational OEMs accounted for about 41 percent of the electronics manufacturing in China. Although Chinese OEMs have encountered difficulties during the last two years they have maintained constant growth. However total multinational OEM revenue as a percentage of overall manufacturing in China is declining. iSuppli predicts that the multinational OEMs will decrease its percentage from 41% to 32 % in 2010 while the Chinese OEMs percentage will rise from 23 to 27 in 2010.
