    Low growth

    China’s economy grew 6.9 percent year on year in 2015, the slowest annual expansion in a quarter of a century, but it is still in line with the official target, according to data from the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) on January 20.

    Growth in the fourth quarter came in at 6.8 percent year on year, the lowest quarterly rate since the global financial crisis, the data showed. The Chinese Government targeted an annual economic growth of around 7 percent for 2015.

    Gala mascot

    A 3-D monkey mascot* created for this year’s Spring Festival Gala is being widely criticized online, in part, because of its strange facial features.

    The mascot, Kangkang, debuted on Thursday. It’s based on a colored ink prototype painted by well-known Chinese artist Han Meilin. The 80-year-old is the man behind the famous “fuwa,” the mascots for the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008. For the Spring Festival mascot, his design is a smiling monkey with only its round, hairy head in view, with his face in yellow, emerald* green and rose.

    Beijing population

    Beijing will cap* its population at 23 million by 2020, officials said during the annual local “two sessions.”

    The two sessions refer to meetings of the Municipal People’s Congress, the local legislature, and the Municipal Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, a local political advisory body. In the next five years, Beijing will continue to relocate population from downtown areas to suburban areas, said Mayor Wang Anshun. Permanent population in the downtown areas will drop by 15 percent from 2014.

    Chemical plants

    Tianjin will start a 29-billion-yuan (US$4.4-billion) relocation of two large chemical plants in 2016 following massive blasts of a chemical warehouse that killed more than 160 people in 2015, local sources have said.

    Relocation of the Tianjin Chemical Plant and Tianjin Dagu Chemical Plant from a densely populated area to the Nangang Industrial Zone in southern Tianjin will start this year, said Wang Junming, general manager of Nangang Industrial Zone Co. The two factories are located in the Hangu and Tanggu districts of Tianjin. (SD-Agencies)
