    Default in an anticipation of 14% growth?

    Hi teachers,
    Is this sentence correct?
    China plans to open 4 new airports over the next five years in anticipation of 14% annual passenger growth.

    Should there be an article be added in "in anticipation of"?

    thanks,

    thanks,
    No, it's fine as it is. "Anticipation" is a noncount noun in that usage.
