China's economic restructuring made landmark progress in 2015 as the servicesector created more than half of GDP for the first time everofficial data showed Tuesday.

The service sector contributed 50.5 percent to the country's GDP in 2015, up from 48.1 percentin 2014, according to the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS).

The percentagewhich has continued to grow over the last two decades,exceeded 50 percent forthe first timewhile factoriescontribution to GDP was 40.5 percentas the government tried toshift from investment-powered growth to cleaner and more sustainable expansion.

The value added in the service sector increased 8.3 percent year on year to 34.2 trillion yuan($5.3 trillion), while growth was 3.9 percent for the primary sector and 6 percent for thesecondary.

End-user consumption accounted for 66.4 percent of China's full-year GDP of 67.7 trillion yuan,which expanded 6.9 percent in 2015.

"China's economic structure continued to improve last year," said NBS director Wang Baoan ata news conference.

"Rising contributions from the service sector to GDP are a natural consequence of a country'seconomic development after entering the late stage of industrialization," said Wangwho alsostressed government efforts during the process.
