Hello, everyone! Welcome to “Unique Chinese Words”！ The word we talk about today is“新动能”—new growth drivers, which was mentioned at the press conference given by Chinese Premier Li Keqiang on March 16, 2016. Li said that to develop the “new economy” refers to fostering new growth drivers and encouraging China’s economic transformation. When development has come to a certain stage, it is natural for traditional growth drivers to begin to weaken, hence the boom of new growth drivers is needed to accommodate the need of the industrial revolution. And when we combine the new growth drivers with the upgraded traditional growth drivers, a hybrid driving force is created.
For example: Propelled by the twin engines -- the new growth drivers and upgraded traditional ones, China's economy will be able to get beyond difficulties and rise to a more promising level.
