Eurozone crisis takes toll on Chinese economy
Export giant hurt by shrinking markets, weaker domestic demand
After years of strong growth, China's economy is showing signs of slowing, because of several factors, including the eurozone debt crisis, weakening domestic demand and a slow economic recovery in the United States.
In the first quarter, China's economic growth was at a nearly three-year low of 8.1 per cent.
For the mostly export-based economy, it means Chinese businesses are feeling the pinch.
CBC's Catherine Mercier travelled to one of China's manufacturing centres, Wenzhou, to see the impact of the downturn.
