BEIJING (Reuters) – China will keep its economic growth within a reasonable range for the next five years, Premier Li Keqiang said, adding that the external environment may get more complicated, with more uncertainties and challenges.

Li made the comments at a government meeting on Monday as Beijing studies the 14th five-year economic plan for the 2021-2025 period, featuring key policy support measures to further open up its economy, according to a statement on the State Council’s website.
