HONG KONG -- Leading economists' average forecast for China's GDP growth in 2020 is 5.9%, a survey of experts in the field by Nikkei and Nikkei Quick News has found.

The projection is even lower than the 6.2% forecast for this year, as the U.S.-China trade war is expected to keep applying downward pressure. It would be the first time since 1990 -- the year after the Tiananmen Square incident -- for China's economy to expand less than 6%.
