In 2011, the Chinese construction industry valued CNY11.8 trillion (US$1.8 trillion), having risen from CNY5.1 trillion (US$0.7 trillion) in 2007. This robust growth in the review period was driven by the government's eleventh five-year plan (2006-2011), which allocated CNY3.3 trillion (US$0.5 trillion) to infrastructure development. The hosting of the Olympic Games in 2008 was another revenue source for China's growing construction industry, enabling the overall industry to withstand the global financial crisis of 2009 and record consistent double-digit growth during the review period.
