    China's economy grew at its slowest pace since 1999 last year, but it seems to have avoided a sharp economic slowdown - or "hard landing".

    The economy regained speed in the final three months of the year as spending on infrastructure went up and there was a jump in trade.

    The Beijing government is trying to ensure stable growth, which it says is vital for economic reform.
