It is one of few public predictions made by a major state firm indicating that the Chinese economy may continue to slow down, although foreign analysts are anticipating that China will lower its GDP goal as downward pressure lingers.

China aimed to expand its GDP by 7.5 percent in 2014, and the country achieved 7.4-percent growth in the first three quarters.

In 2015, the external environment will recover and the effect of reform measures will kick in, according to the researcher.

The tone-setting central economic work conference later this month is expected to release more signals about China's economic policy for 2015.
