Former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown Says China's Economic Growth Will Drive the Global Economy

      Xinhua September 14, London (Reporter Jiang Lurong) The Reuters carried an article by former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown. He said that the reforms promise to bring another great leap forward in China’s dramatic ascent and China's economic growth will drive the global growth.

      In the article entitled China’s commitment to growth will drive the global economy, Brown said based on the tremendous economic progress in the last three decades of reform and opening up, China’s next challenge is the shift to a high-productivity, high value-added, consumer-based economy now.

      He said if it succeeds, China will probably move from middle-income status to high-income status and make around 1 billion of China’s 1.3 billion population “moderately prosperous” by 2025.

      Brown believes that in an increasingly interdependent world, China’s success depends not just on a new reforming government, but on a continuously expanding world economy. He also calls on strengthening global cooperation and maintains that heightened cooperation would raise growth, increase employment, raise living standards all round and address poverty.
