Executive Summary


                            The Chinese economy maintains a high speed growth
                            which has been stimulated by the consecutive
                            increases of industrial output, import & export,
                            consumer consumption and capital investment. Since
                            its Opening-up and Reform, China becomes the 3rd
                            economic entity in the world with GNP breaking
                            RMB 30 trillion Yuan. In recent years, under the
                            background of global economy recession, China
                            remains an average growth rate around 8%, remaining
                            one of the countries with the fastest economy growth.

                            China's economy development has its unique
                            characteristics. First of all, under the obvious
                            slowdown of global economy, China realizes the rapid
                            growth of economy by sticking to the policy of
                            expanding domestic demand and firmly implementing
                            proactive fiscal policy and moderate monetary policy.
                            Secondly, economic structure adjustment obtains
                            positive progress. The agriculture structure has been
                            optimized and high quality and special farm products
                            have been increased. High-tech industries such as
                            information and biology industry have developed
                            rapidly. The reconstruction of traditional industries
                            and the capacity of eliminating backward production

                            have obtained comparatively great headway.
                            Infrastructure construction has made remarkable
                            achievement in completing a set of key projects
                            including highway, railway, interstate road, key water
                            control project and rural electricity network
                            reconstruction. Western development is launched
                            smoothly and import ant projects such as new railway
                            lines connecting Guiyang and Guangzhou, Lanzhou
                            and Chongqing, Kashgar and Hotan in Xinjiang;
                            highways between Wanyuan and Dazhou in Sichuan
                            Province, Shuikou and Duyun in Guizhou Province;
                            airport expansion projects in Chengdu, Chongqing
                            and Xi’an and transmission of electricity, gas and oil
                            from the western to the eastern region has started.
                            Thirdly, the quality and efficiency of economic
                            growth have been further improved. Industrial
                            enterprises output value increase constantly. With the
                            great increase in the taxation, national fiscal revenue
                            realized two digital growths. Fourthly, the foreign
                            economic & trades have been further expanded. The
                            total volume of import and export has broken
                            US$1.966 trillion, of which export volume mounts to
                            US$1.010 trillion and import volume mounts to
                            US$0.956 billion, up 11.2% and 11.3% annually
                            respectively in the last 5 years. Finally, the people's
                            living standard is continuously improved. The per
                            capita disposable income of residents in cities and
                            towns actually increases by 14.6%. Social security
                            expenditures have been greatly increased in the
                            finance of central and local governments. The
                            subsistence allowances for laid-off workers and basic
                            pensions for retirees have been basically fully granted
                            on time. The State lifts the level of pension of retirees
                            and employees of public institutions and organs and
                            increases the basic pension of retirees. The burden of
                            farmers has been relieved by eliminating the
                            agriculture tax which exist for thousands of years,

                            trimming the price of electricity. The markets of urban
                            and rural areas have developed prosperously, and the
                            living condition and transportation have been further
                            improved.

                            At present, Chinese economic development is at a
                            crossroads, where its operating mechanism, growth
