China’s Growth

China’s consumer price index rises 4.8% in 2007

The CPI (inflation) was at the highest level in more than 10 years.

GDP expands 11.4 percent, fastest in 13 years

2007 saw a slowdown but the year’s growth was still the fastest in more than a lunar cycle.

China’s fixed asset investment up 24.8% in 2007

Fixed assets were up over 2006 by almost 1%. Overall investment – $1.9 trillion.

China’s online game market hit Y12.8 billion in 2007

The game market was up 66.7% over 2006. Shandra had a market share of 19.3%, Netease had 15.1% and Giant Interactive had 11.9%.

Too late to get started in China?

Hardly. It’s just harder now.
