When you realize that China's "slowest growth rate" is 3× America's highest.

at current rate China is adding a Netherlands sized economy every year, and an indian sized economy every 3.5 years. so yeah, better worry about your brexit than a slower RATE of growth in China.
China's slow down is intentional, and will be beneficial in the long run, as the current Xi administration is curbing the overcapacity in economy, which is a leftover problem from the previous Hu administration's over investment due to the 2009 world financial crisis.

China lost their competitive advantage in making Nike sneakers to vietnam and Bangladesh years ago, so why is this channel trying to portray that's a bad thing? This means China is moving up the economic ladder, and is producing higher value goods and services.

BBC in 1990 - china’s economy will collapse next year. Russia wants world war 3. India is a poor and dirty country.

BBC in 2000 - china’s economy will collapse next year. Russia still wants world war 3. India is a poor country.

BBC in 2010 - china’s economy will collapse next year. Russia wants world war 3 russsia is evil. India is poor country with millions of starving people.

BBC in 2019 - china’s economy is about to collapse. Russia wants world war 3 Putin is murderer and dictator. India is poor and don’t have toilets.

No matter how good these three countries do, it will always be ‘evil’ in front of the salty brits and westerners.

Keep in mind that everytime a non-Anglos country is suceeding, you have those western medias who would try to belittle this country.
5 years ago it was Russia, now it’s China. And you even start to notice some news about India.
Westerners are salty to lose their white hegemony and would try to shot you down if you outdo them 🤔

When worker's wages were low, BBC told you that it was modern slavery, and when the wages increase, BBC told you that it was the sign of economic issues. Yeah, I got it. No matter what happened in China, it must be something bad. Good job, BBC.

Even China reaches its lowest point, there's nothing to worry about. The political structure in China allows the existing government set their eyesight on the long-term future, whereas the so-called democracy in the US makes the politicians short term oriented.
Over time, China will take off way further.
Just my personal opinion.

Could it be some kind of propaganda? BBC using Indian looking face to anger Chinese with nonsense news knowing full well there is a serious border issues between the two?

Maybe I'm reading too much into it.
