    Great Changes have taken place in China
    Within mere half a century, China has changed its previous image of poor economy and established a modern industry system with a complete set of various industrial sectors. Since its establishment, China has increased its GDP about 56 times. China also experienced obvious improvements in such sectors as national economy, national defense, science and technology, which, to some extent, have achieved higher global rankings. China not only solved the problem of providing enough foods for its 1.2 billion people, but also raised the living standards to a higher level

    The whole world has witnessed the great changes in China, especially since she adapted " Reform and Opening Policy " in 1979.

    As there are more and more big projects sponsored by the government and international financial organizations, the market expansion provides better bidding and investment opportunities and market perspectives for foreign investors and corporations.

    At present, the slowing down of global economy determines the current sluggish market and weaker market demands as some countries, especially developed countries showed omens of slowing economy and preliminary recessions. In contrast, China has kept a steady increase in national economy development by achieving 116.3 billion dollars in importand 124.7 billon dollars in expert respectively in the first half of 2001.

    Due to the steady increase of national economy in China, the emersion of big projects become quite commonplace throughout China. According to some reports, China needs further investments about RMB200 billion or so in the next 5years to carry out various infrastructure projects in the railroad and power supply sectors such as natural gas transmission from the west to the east, electricity supply transmission from the west to the east, water supply transmission from the south to the north and the Qing Hai-Tibet railroad etc., These projects foreign investors with tremendous business opportunities. Furthermore, as shown in another example, the success of China's bidding for 2008 Olympic Games provides the bidding opportunities of the construction of about 35 large palaestras in Beijing. And such biddings are soon to open.

    In sum, China provides foreign companies with not only a huge market but also tremendous opportunities to participate in business competitions.
