In the global market, trade barriers from the Western countries and China will affect the global economic recovery process.

Looking ahead, we believe the China economy will continuously maintain the upward trend of 2009 as well as a steady and relatively rapid development."

Meanwhile, the PRC government continued to launch relevant policies to support the PRC industries, such as textile industry, the market demand of textile products increases gradually as a result.

These include to strengthen production innovation and technology upgrade, produce more value-added and medium-to-high products to satisfy the demand of the domestic market, improve internal management and expand the geographical coverage of business continuously. The Group believes opportunities exist amid a turbulent market. Meanwhile, under the government's policy of "expanding domestic demand", a steady and relatively rapid growth had been achieved in the domesticmarket, which definitely was the primary factor for the tentative recovery of the textile industry."
