China’s economy grows a lot in 2024. Chinese companies start making green things like electric cars, batteries, and solar panels.

But other countries worry. They need China and its products. They depend on China too much. But they think that China helps its companies too much. It means that Chinese products are very cheap. It hurts businesses in other places. China is very good at producing green products. It is changing the world. The West is angry at China.

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
