Updated 22:53, 08-Mar-2022

China has set its GDP growth target at around 5.5 percent for 2022. During the government work report on Saturday, Premier Li Keqiang said China's economy will "surely go steady and far," but also warned about the triple pressures of shrinking demand, disruptive supply and weakening expectations.

So, is the target reasonable? What will be the main drivers of China's economy this year? CGTN interviewed Zhang Zhaoan, former vice president of Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences, and Wang Dan, chief economist of Hang Seng Bank China, during China's most important annual political meetings.
