China keeps growth target at 6.5 percent, stays focused on financial risksBy Kevin Yao and Sue-Lin Wong BEIJING (Reuters) – China aims to expand its economy by around 6.5 percent this year, the same as in 2017, while pressing ahead with its campaign to reduce risks in the financial system, Premier Li Keqiang said Monday. The goal was kept unchanged even though the economy grew 6.9 percent last year and exceeded the government’s target. Sources previously told Reuters that China will maintain its growth target at “around 6.5 percent”.
