An economist team of ANZ Research led by Liu Ligang said in a recent report that allowing economic growth to slow down would help create more maneuvering space for China's structural reforms.

"Looking forward, we expect the service sector to contribute a larger part of China's economic growth and become the main driver. As the imports of China gradually shift from imports for the purpose of processing trade to general imports, China's imports will also lead to more growth opportunities for the global economy," said the report.

Even in the short term, there does not seem to be much to worry about.

"The businesses in the region and around the world will calibrate their expectation" in making investment to target slower growth rather than growth of around 10 percent seen in the previous decade, Song said.
