China's gross domestic output grew 7.7 percent in the first nine months, which has secured the government's full-year target of 7.5 percent.

However, while most developed areas in this country such as Guangdong province, Beijing and Shanghai have recently cut their growth targets to expand their room for economic restructuring, a number of local governments still seem to be fixated on GDP growth.
