After all, accounts for nearly half of economic output Middle Kingdom.   China should also be an engine for global economic growth in the next few years. During this year, the economy should grow by eight percent, while Europe will face stagnation and the United States grow about two percent.

Of course with it economic growth carries a change to citizens. Workers demand higher wages and the central government is beginning to be a problem to import cheap labor from the east of the country. Chinese citizens are also critical to the ecological devastation caused by unsound production processes. Brake happens to legislation on minimum wages (past decade has increased the minimum wage to more than dvouapůlnásobek), ie a little faster than the overall economic growth. The government is seeking higher wages, increase consumption of households, whose share of total economic output is about half of the United States.

It is true that in Vietnam and Indonesia, wages are significantly lower.   On the other hand, there should investors expect significantly worse infrastructure. The average Vietnamese employee coming year in terms of less than 18 000, - CZK, ie, less than a fifth of the income of the average Chinese.
