Countries around the globe are nervously watching what is happening to the Chinese economy – and fear the potential knock on effects.

New government statistics say China’s GDP grew last year by almost seven percent – many other countries would be delighted by that.

But its the lowest growth for 25 years – and another sign that the heady days of record-breaking economic expansion are long gone.

The true situation could be even worse – some analysts do not believe the official data.

As the world’s second biggest economy again stalls, countries which export commodities such as oil and iron ore to China are suffering – with the possibility of worse to come.

So, what has gone wrong? And should the world be concerned?
