    China is likely to overtake Japan to become the world's second largest economy, either this year or by 2010, a research paper issued recently by the China Policy Institute of the University of Nottingham (UK) has revealed.

    据英国诺丁汉大学中国政策研究院近期的一份研究报告称 ,中国有望在今年或2010年的经济发展超过世界第二大经济强国日本。

    Fan Jianping, director of the Economic Forecasting Department of the State Information Center, responded to that report yesterday, saying that such a kind of ranking is meaningless, considering China's extremely low per-capita GDP, which he believes is the most important indicator to determine whether a country is a developing country or not.


    In the World Bank's ranking of GDP per capita for 2007 using purchasing power parity, China was ranked 112th at $5,370, behind Egypt, El Salvador and Armenia.
