China has revised its economic growth figures for 2005, saying the economy actually grew by more than previously thought.
|China revises growth upwards
Instead of the previously announced 9.9 per cent growth, the nation's statistics bureau says China actually grew by 10.2 per cent.
Our correspondent in Beijing, John Taylor, says the change has occurred because China is getting better at measuring what is going on in the economy.
It is not the first time that China has changed the economic past, and 2005's figure may well change again.
The bureau's report is only a preliminary account and the final account is still to come.
