China's premier called "expanding consumer demand" one of his priorities for the upcoming year. The move comes after a decade in which building vast infrastructure projects and boosting the country's exports took center stage in the Chinese economy, Reuters reports. Last year, China's gross domestic product (GDP), or annual economic output, grew by 9.2%. In 2010 gross domestic product grew 10.4%.
"I wish to stress that in setting a slightly lower GDP growth rate, we hope... to guide people in all sectors to focus their work on accelerating the transformation of the pattern of economic development and making economic development more sustainable and efficient," Premier Wen Jiabao explained.

Despite a lack of Facebook, China's social networking population reached nearly 257 million in 2011. Meanwhile half of internet users have been attracted by local weibo and other domestic social networking sites, with the proportion expected to rise to nearly two-thirds by 2014.
