China congress: New leaders 'face economic challenges'

China's new leaders face a number of economic challenges, Donald Hanna, chief economist of Fortress Investment Group, told the BBC's Asia Business Report.

Mr Hanna said China has to rebalance its economy to increase domestic consumer demand.

He said it needed to do this through increased wages relative to profits.

Mr Hanna said other problems China faced were its aging population, and high pollution levels.
