SHANGHAI — China’s New Year holiday sales grew at a double-digit clip this year but showed clear signs of a slowdown, especially in sectors such as apparel and restaurants.
Sales in China during the New Year holiday period, which ran from Feb. 9 to 15, grew 14.7 percent over last year’s holiday, according to statistics released by China’s Ministry of Commerce. The 2012 Chinese, or Lunar, New Year celebrations came earlier in January.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
