Yes - the central government is pushing development further inland and enhancing the secondary cities. Hope the wealth along the coastal areas can move further west.

Since when has the BBC been a newspaper? For someone who hates it so much, you really don't seem to know a lot about it.

Here's a hint.

British Broadcasting Corporation.

Well i should have called it a news reporting agency and ofcourse what you said is right but i usually read it on website so it almost replaces the experince of reading news from a newspaper. Anyway my bad ,it is not a newspaper but i do stand by claims that BBC is one of the biggest propaganda machines on earth and no media agency gives a more biased perspective than it

This is the problem. Even though there are cases of censorship in Chinese media (and elsewhere or course), all people in China are fully aware of the fact that the media are supervised by the government, and thus read them with "a pinch of salt". In the West, most people believe that the media always tells the truth, when you generally see as much or even more bias in Western media than in Chinese media.

PYI eyes port, property deals in Chongqing
22 June 2009
South China Morning Post

Hong Kong-listed PYI Corp is aggressively investing in ports along the Yangtze River.

While the mainland's container exports have suffered more than double digit falls this year because of the global economic crisis, PYI deputy chairman Tom Lau Ko-yuen said the group's revenues would not suffer as badly.

"We project our port revenue and throughput will decline by no more than 10 per cent in 2009," he said.

PYI's ports are all along the Yangtze River, where about 90 per cent of the cargo is bulk. "That means we are less affected as a port group. Highly affected port groups are container ports," said Mr Lau.

He said PYI was hoping to make at least one investment in Chongqing this year.

"There will likely be some investment opportunities in Chongqing. We have had an intention to do business with Chongqing Port Group in four areas, and we hope some may materialize this year.

"When we finish our investment in Chongqing, the skeleton of our Yangtze port network will have been formed."

Chongqing Port Group is a conglomerate with annual revenue of more than 10 billion yuan (HK$11.34 billion).

As one investment opportunity, PYI was looking at redeveloping the Chaotianmen port district in Chongqing as a property project with shopping centres, Mr Lau said: "It is like Tsim Sha Tsui of Hong Kong."

PYI is also looking to participate in some of Chongqing Port Group's bulk cargo ports and container ports and rebuilding some passenger terminals in Chongqing for tourism.

"The property opportunity in Chaotianmen is big, which means we will invite other partners. The other opportunities are smaller, in the 100 million yuan range," he said.

On June 11, PYI acquired 25 per cent of Jiangyin Sunan International Container Terminal Company from Shanghai International Port Group for 27.65 million yuan.

Jiangyin Sunan International operates the container terminal in Jiangyin Port in Jiangsu province, which ranks fifth among ports along the Yangtze River in throughput. Its container throughput grew 63.5 per cent to 500,000 twenty foot equivalent units (TEUs) last year.

"There is an intention to further expand Jiangyin port by new investments to be financed by the proceeds of a rights issue, by buying more shares and building facilities, acquiring terminals, and modernising terminals," said Mr Lau.

On June 9, shareholders approved a rights issue by PYI. The group said the net proceeds of HK$350 million would be used for investments in Yangtze River ports and for general working capital. Some would also go to paying the unpaid portion of PYI's investment in Yichang port.

In September last year, PYI entered into a conditional agreement to take a 51 per cent stake in Yichang Port Group, which operates Yichang port on the Yangtze River, for 149 million yuan. In April, the consideration was reduced to 114 million yuan because of the financial crisis.

PYI plans to build new terminals and expand existing terminals in Yichang port, with a view to building a strategic coal reserve facility there, Mr Lau said.

"In PYI, we only think Yangtze. We believe there is a good rationale to consolidate ports and terminals along the Yangtze River," said Mr Lau.

"The purpose of the rights issue is to finance new investments in line with our Yangtze strategy.

"The revenue of PYI will increase as we buy more ports."

PYI hoped to align the various businesses of ports along the river, such as containers, iron ore and coal, to make them more efficient through greater co-operation and less competition, he added.

You do realize the BBC is a non-profit organization right?

IT has ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with the government of the UK and does not serve anyone's interests but it's own... it does not need advertising revenue.

It is arguably the benchmark for non-biased news reporting in the world followed closely by Reuters.

Obviously things will be reported wrong from time to time, but I daresay the BBC is more candid and open about it than any state run Chinese news organization.

you are wrong, this is a false assumption i fell for too.

My friend did a TOK presentation a while ago where he thoroughly expalined how the BBC does not report false things, but twists them and leaves certain things out.

does not serve anyone's interests but it's own...
Exactly. More than often it has its own agenda to shape its international news after - and it is safe to say that China is not popular among the decision-makers at the British Broadcasting Corporation - regardless of whose interests it is serving.
This became especially obvious during the Lhasa riots in 2008 when manipulated/cropped photos and usage of images from other countries/events (Nepal etc.) were the rule rather than the exception during BBC's (and many other Western media outlets') coverage.

Swedes generally have a similar unconditional trust for its (especially state-run) media - SVT - as the Brits do for BBC. It's downright frightening, really.

but I daresay the BBC is more candid and open about it than any state run Chinese news organization.
Again, no one has claimed that Chinese media, state-run or not, is more open or non-biased than any other country's media. The huge difference people are mentioning is that the Chinese generally have a very critical stance towards everything reported in the media-- domestic or foreign. This is because Chinese media doesn't hypocritically claim to be "free" and unbiased as opposed to many Western media outlets.
