Our weekly news review (from the pick of our ChinaBlogTweets Twitter feed) follows, and includes an inflationary update (a sensitive topic, and one to watch), another Five-Year Plan announcement (for the environmental protection sector), and the added (likely) bonus of carbon taxes! We also note some of China’s fastest growing provinces (Inner Mongolia, Shaanxi, Hunan, Jilin, Hubei) – the rise of central China continues. Also continuing is Overseas Direct Investment & M&A. Not to mention a trend (just starting) for RMB bond issuance (McDonalds has been followed by Caterpillar). In addition we cover Westinghouse’s very topical technology transfer, risk reduction. Finally, China (through the People’s Daily) seeks to update its national image, while we close with the top 10 economic scandals of 2010!
