AT&S to expand investment in China

HONG KONG, Nov. 7 (Xinhua) -- Austria Technologie & Systemtechnik AG (AT&S) has seen great business opportunities in the Chinese market and will expand its investment in China as the country is increasingly focusing on the high-end technology products, Andreas Gerstenmayer, CEO of the Europe's largest printed circuit boards (PCB) maker said here on Wednesday.

Gerstenmayer said in a press meeting that "With high levels of education, a skilled workforce and a supportive business environment, we see a great opportunity to continue our investment program into China as the country becomes increasingly focused on the manufacture and production of high-end technology products."

He said AT & S is Austria's biggest investor in China, with over 750 million U.S. dollars invested in the region to date, adding that the investment tie is still expanding.

Gerstenmayer expects China to become the key revenue and margin driver for AT & S as a result of its continued investment into the country.

Founded in 1987, AT & S is one of the market leaders in the high-end PCB technology, with its products mainly used for mobile devices such as smart phones and tablet personal computers. It hires over 7,500 people globally, with more than 4,500 working in China.

The company currently runs six factories worldwide, including one in Shanghai. The seventh plant, which is still under construction, was set up in Chongqing last year, and is expected to put into operation in 2013.

The Austria Trade Commissioner of the Advantage Austria Christian Schierer, who was also presented at the press conference, said that the relationship between China and Austria is "striking", with the bilateral trades between the two countries tripled in the last decade.

Schierer said there are currently about 620 Austrian firms run in China, and those companies are capable and trusted to cater for the rising demand in China as the country is shifting to focus on high-end and high-value products.

Chongqing sets new roadmap in post-Bo Xilai era

CHONGQING, Jan. 27 (Xinhua) -- Chongqing's municipal government vowed Saturday it would shake off the impacts of the Bo Xilai scandal and make law-abiding governance the priority alongside further reform.

Huang Qifan, mayor of the metropolis in southwest China, described 2012 as an "extremely extraordinary year" for Chongqing's development in his report on the work of the municipal government, which was delivered to the 4th Chongqing Municipal People's Congress.

The local legislature convened its annual session on Saturday with aims to outline the city's future blueprint for the next five years.

The mayor said the government has endeavored to maintain steady economical and social development despite the severe toll of the incidents involving Bo Xilai, with the city recording an annual economic growth of 13.6 percent.

"It turned out that Chongqing citizens have weathered storms and withstood ordeals," he said.

The government published the full text of its work report, in which it placed governing in accordance with the Constitution and the law as a main focus for this year, while references to Chongqing's previous high-profile crackdowns on organized crimes are notably absent.

In 2009, when Bo Xilai was the CPC (Communist Party of China) chief of Chongqing, the city launched a massive anti-crime campaign, prioritizing fighting local mafia-style gangs. Though Bo and Chongqing's police were credited with reducing crime, concerns were raised about abuses of power and the neglect of due legal process.

The government should rule in accordance with the law, and "no organization or individual has the privilege to overstep the Constitution and the law," the work report said.h As power reshuffle in this session is set to usher in new local leaders, higher requirements are posed for the municipal government to further intensify reform, Huang told the lawmakers, adding that improvement to work style should be made following the central leadership's call for eradicating bureaucracy and formalism in December.

Officials in Chongqing are urged to remain low-key and down to earth, talk less and work more to better serve the people.

The strict observance of morality and discipline is required while officials, especially those with high ranks, should better educate and restrain their relatives and staff members working closely with them, allowing no privilege, according to Huang.

Bo's wife, Bo-Gu Kailai, and his former police chief, Wang Lijun, were convicted over the scandal that stemmed from the murder of a British businessman in November 2011 while Bo was secretary of the Chongqing Municipal Committee of the CPC.

Bo was later deprived of CPC membership and expelled from public service for severe disciplinary violations.

Zhang Dejiang, who replaced Bo in March, noted at a Party congress meeting that the cases have greatly tarnished the image of the party and have had a grave impact on Chongqing's reform and development.

BALANCED GROWTH A TOUGH CHALLENGE

The report indicates that Chongqing municipal government now has its feet on the ground, said Zhou Qingxing, professor with the Trade and Administration department of Chongqing University.

"The report refutes what has been propagated as skyrocketing in Bo's term of office since 2007," Zhou said.

In outlining the city's targeted development in the next five years, the report envisions the city reaching the national average level in 2017.

Admitting to the reality that Chongqing still lags behind much of the rest of the country will provide impetus for officials and people to work realistically, according to Zhou.

Chongqing, a city with most of its 8.4 million square meters spanning across mountainous areas, has been burdened with undeveloped rural areas for decades.

The situation reflected the nation's reality that urban and rural imbalance has greatly hindered economy and social development.

Authorities began to address the city's chronic urban-rural imbalance in 2007, with implementation of a pilot reform program to bridge the urban-rural gap.

The reform has proven to be smooth. The report suggests that the urbanization ratio has risen to 57 percent in 2012, and rural residents' annual income grew at 16 percent in the past five years.

Over three million farmers have already gained urban resident status, with authorities permitting them to retain their rural land and gain equal access to education, health care and other services in the city.

However, Prof. Zheng Fengtian said Chongqing still faces tough challenges in achieving an overall development, mainly due to its huge rural-urban imbalance.

"Chongqing is a sprawling metropolis with 20 million rural people in its 33 million-strong population, which means higher costs for rural infrastructure investment," said the professor with the School of Agricultural Economics and Rural Development in Renmin University.

China expands Yangtze River shipping capacity

YICHANG, Hubei, Jan. 22 (Xinhua) -- The shipping capacity of the Yangtze River, China's longest, has been vastly expanded as the result of decade-long efforts to dredge and deepen the river, an affiliate of the Ministry of Transport said on Monday.

The river's main course saw its shipping volume top 1.78 billion tonnes in 2012, four times that of 2003 with an average annual growth rate of 10 percent, said Xiong Xuebin, director of the Yangtze River Hydrographic Bureau, an institution affiliated with the ministry.

Xiong said the revamped waterway now allows heavier ships to reach the upstream city of Chongqing, even during periods of dry weather.

He said the depth of the river's 370-km Chongqing-Yibin stretch has been increased to 2.7 meters from the original 1.8 meters.

Heavier ships will also be able to sail on the middle reaches of the river located between the cities of Yichang and Wuhan in central China's Hubei Province.

Heavy vessels will also be able to cruise on a downstream section of the river located in east China's Jiangsu Province.

"The dredging program that began in 2003 has created huge economic benefits for provinces and cities along the river," Xiong said.

one river is naturally brown from the silt, the other is normal dark blue.




The Parana river does the same in Brazil where it meets the silted Amazon



Orinoco

All cities have those planning models and they all look like out of Star Wars. Soon will try to find the one for Changzhou.
