China pins hope on new free-trade zone

A new free-trade zone has been opened in Shanghai in an effort to maintain annual economic growth.

    Last March, China's new premier promised economic liberalisation.

    Li Ker-chiang made the pledge amid concern that the country would not be able to sustain its benchmark of seven percent annual growth.

    A new free-trade zone has been opened in Shanghai in an effort to maintain that goal.
