Congratulations, NH!

Do you feel comfortable to change expansion to growth without more information on the context?

Yes, I do. 'Growth' is the collocation here, unless it is some very wierd economic development you are speaking of.

I agree with Mr Micawber that 'growth' is the collocation for here.

How about this?

'Our economic growth has made the transition from quantitative to qualitative change.'
