The Mainland economy grew about 6.7 percent last year, according to the chairman of the National Development and Reform Commission.

The report from government-run news agency Xinhua cites Xu Shaoshi, the commission’s chairman, who says the size of the economy exceeded 70 trillion yuan (US$10.1 trillion) last year.

The Mainland economy grew by 6.7 percent in the first three quarters of last year. The Government set an official target of between 6.5 percent and 7 percent.

Mr Xu told a press conference on Tuesday that the Government’s economic structural reforms and new sources of growth would contribute to a reasonable rate of growth this year.
