BEIJING (Reuters) - Steady economic growth in April lays a good foundation for achieving China’s full-year growth target, a spokeswoman from the country’s statistics bureau said Tuesday.

Liu Aihua said she expects investment will maintain healthy growth but that there is less room for a boost from infrastructure investment.

China’s government has set a GDP growth target of around 6.5 percent this year, down from the actual 6.9 percent in 2017.
