BEIJING -- The Chinese economy will probably continue expanding at a roughly 5% annual clip over the next 15 years, an adviser to President Xi Jinping told Nikkei, citing a rapidly developing technology sector.

The comment comes ahead of a plenary session starting Monday for the ruling Chinese Communist Party's Central Committee, which will discuss long-term economic goals through 2035. Hu Angang, a professor in Tsinghua University's School of Public Policy and Management, said that "China has been able to control the coronavirus' impact on the economy, but many uncertainties remain in the world."
