»This is in synch with sustainable environment concept.

» Zhai said that China's top five power companies will face losses during the first two months.


Qingdao Port: Chang Dechuan, Chairman of Qingdao Port Group

Culture Management Reform: Liu Ping, head of Yinchuan Shaanxi Opera Troupe

» “The weak financial status of [the arts in northwest China] puts culture management reform at a disadvantage,” Liu said.
