Beijing-China's economy is expected to grow by 9.4 percent in 2004, slowing marginally to 8.9 percent growth in 2005, according to a senior economist with the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.
The economist was quoted as saying, "If there are no major breaking events internationally, or severe natural disasters or other big domestic issues, the country's economy is capable of maintaining a growth rate of more than 8 per cent next year, due to the country's macro-control measures."
