BEIJING - Recent natural disasters in China have had a relatively large impact on the economy, Premier Li Keqiang said, according to state radio on Tuesday.

In the last few weeks, China has been hit by super typhoon Nepartak and severe flooding, which killed more than 100 people and damaged infrastructure, livestock and agriculture.

Li made the comments made during a meeting with high-level officials and business leaders on Monday.

China will try to maintain economic growth within a reasonable range and the economy is basically stable, he said, but downward pressure remains.
