The projected GDP growth of China for 2009 was 6 – 6.5% which is way below the 9% growth achieved in 2008, even though it is high compared to the world average. In view of this slowing economic growth, the government of China found it imperative to inject funds and stimulate the economy thereby helping the economy attain higher growth rates. The Chinese stimulus package of $586 billion was introduced in November 2008 following the US financial crisis. The stimulus package is expected to be spent over a period of two years.
