China's gross domestic product (GDP) grew by 6.1 percent in 2019, meeting the government's growth target of 6-6.5 percent, according to data published by the National Bureau of Statistics on Friday.

However, the figure sits 0.5 percentage points less than the growth posted in 2018 and is the country's weakest growth since 1990, highlighting the slowdown of the Chinese economy. EFE-EPA
