BEIJING (MNI) - China's government won't set goals to grow its GDP by
"multiples" from 2020, according to a statement given to reporters at a press
conference in Beijing on Thursday.

said it will achieve growth through "evolutions" in quality, efficiency and
China's economy is changing toward a higher-quality growth phase and the
most acute problem now is the low quality of production rather than the lack of
production capacity, the statement said.

government's Economic and Finance Work Group, told reporters. China been
de-emphasizing rates of growth for the last five years, he argued.
China will comprehensively improve the real economy through technological
innovation, modern finance and the development of human resources, Yang said.
China will become a "moderately prosperous society" by 2020, the statement
said. China will set as priorities tackling "major risks, reducing poverty and
