     BEIJING (MNI) - The on-going trade frictions with the U.S. have had "many
impact" on the Chinese economy, including trade and investment, Ning Jizhe, the
head of the National Bureau of Statistics said at a press briefing in Beijing on
Monday. 
     However, Ning said the two countries' negotiations on resolving conflicts
have had some positive progress. 
     The year 2019 will likely see even more grave challenges for China,
including rising protectionism, slowing global growth, and domestic
restructuring, Ning said. China will take measures including raising incomes to
spur spending and further improving the infrastructure, and it is confident of
its abilities to overcome the challenges, Ning said.
