33 State Owned Enterprises

State Owned Enterprises

Massive historical dependence on SOEs, especially military (PLA owned / run) in Chongqing By 2006, 80% of its SOEs had restructured to adapt to new market conditions (or close) Restructuring = running the enterprises on a profit / loss commercial basis and hence, more market orientated. It does not equate with privatisation. Most enterprises remain in state ownership and governance, even if listed on the stock exchange. So many people are dependent on SOEs that profits from one enterprise can be used to support loss-makers.

As the water rises, whats gone

A public park there is ''not so much a park as a lull in the city. There are stunned bushes and exhausted flowers and brokenhearted patches of grass. But all of it is well cared for The problem is the air, the coal dust that blankets the city. . . . Few things are more pathetic than a tree in Fuling, its leaves gray and dull as if it were just taken out of the attic.'

El Nino caused severe typhoons which penetrated as far as the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, resulting in accelerated snow-melt. 70% of the basins annual rainfall falls in the 4 summer months anyway. The Typhoons brought extra intensity to the rainfall (300mm in 24 hours in some parts) Meteorological and hydrological conditions similar to those for the 1998 floods. 250,000+ homes affected
