The Chinese capital Beijing is striving to notch a year-on-year GDP growth of over 5% this year, local authorities said Thursday.

The city also aims to maintain its consumer price index (CPI) increase within 3% compared to the previous year. The targets were unveiled in the government work report delivered by the city's mayor Chen Jining at the ongoing fifth session of the 15th Beijing Municipal People's Congress.

According to preliminary estimate, Beijing's GDP exceeded 4 trillion yuan ($627.7 billion) in 2021, up 8.5% over the previous year, and its CPI during the same period went up 1.1% year on year, Chen said.

He added that the city's per capita GDP and total labor productivity in 2021 took the lead in the country.

The municipal lawmakers of the city convened their annual meeting on Thursday. Both the city's political consultative and legislative meetings, collectively known as Beijing's "two sessions," kicked off this week to discuss local economic and social development over the past year and make plans for this year.
