BEIJING (Reuters) - China's economic growth is getting closer to its potential rate, Central Bank Governor Yi Gang said on Thursday, as the world's second-largest economy faces uncertainties due to a trade dispute with the United States.

China's overcapacity woes have significantly eased, though there is increasing downward pressure on the economy, Yi said at a forum at Tsinghua University in Beijing.
