Extraordinary experiences for China in the past five years – People’s Daily

From The People’s Daily Online:

It proves that China has stood the test of difficult situations and achieved its goal of fast economic development while still facing great challenges ahead.

A United Nations report issued that year said the world economy had plunged into the lowest point in the previous decade or so.
