    Victor Gao, the former translator of China's great reformer, Deng Xiaoping says he is not worried about China achieving 8 per cent growth in 2009, but about the quality of that growth.

    Saying he is worried if the money, most of which will be spent on infrastructure projects, will generate enough return.

    But he emphasises the key challenge is to do everything possible to pull the country out of slow economic growth.
