I'm a China booster, but it's quite clear that they game metrics when they can, and that they're gaming this particular metric. Raw publication numbers aren't an indicator of quality or usefulness, and the Chinese still lag behind the UK in citations.
I say this thinking about tools, where made in China and made in USA no longer is a guarantee of low and high quality respectively. Short of some paradigm shift in the US, though, the trend seems to be on China's side.
