BEIJING -- China looks to set an economic growth target of "around 6%" for 2020, down from this year's goal of "6% to 6.5%," as the trade war with the U.S. continues to weigh on the country, Nikkei has learned.

The target for real gross domestic product growth is believed to have been approved at the Central Economic Work Conference that wrapped up Thursday. The figure will be announced in the government's work report at the National People's Congress session in March.
