by Li, Na, Minjun Shi and Wen Huang

Euro Sovereign Debt Crisis will influence international trade and global economy through affecting factors supply, consumer and investment demand, and production efficiency in the PIIGS region.

Due to the impact of the European Sovereign debt crisis, the average annual growth of Chinas economy decreased 0.37 percentage points, which is more serious than the United States and other BRIC countries. The exports of raw materials processing and machinery and electronics manufacturing industries of China were affected more serious.
