China may miss economic growth target amid Covid-19 restrictions

China has signalled that it may miss its annual economic growth target, as Covid restrictions weigh on the world's second largest economy.
The Politburo - the ruling Communist Party's top policy-making body - says it aims to keep growth within a reasonable range.
It did not mention the official growth target of 5.5% it had earlier set.
China is continuing to pursue a zero-Covid policy that has put major cities into full or partial lockdowns.
