In 2015, Chinese GDP growth, despite its lowest level for a quarter century, remains at 6.9%. The slow-down is the result of China rebalancing its economy. 2016 marks the beginning of China's 13th Five Year Plan that will help put China's growth on a more solid foundation and create opportunities for sustainable growth in the long run. With its economy expected to grow at 6 to 7 percent and its chair of the G20, China can ensure its role as a fully engaged member of the global economy.
