China’s policymakers and leading economists on Sunday voiced concerns about Britain’s vote to leave the European Union, with the finance minister saying it has heightened market uncertainty, though some expect a limited impact on the Chinese economy, Reuters reports.

Lou’s views were echoed by the head of China’s top economic planning authority and other economists at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in the northern city of Tianjin.
