Statistics shows that gross retail sales reached 23.7 trillion yuan in the first 11 months of 2014, a year on year increase of 12 per cent. In the first three quarters of 2014, the contribution of consumption to the growth of GDP reached 48.5 per cent, 7 percentage points higher than investment. This is the first time that consumption has surpassed investment to become the primary driving factor of economic growth.
