legislative body, according to a company’s 2013 annual report.

Corruption Effects

China’s anti-corruption debate is negligence a economy and
could cut expansion by 1 commission point, Lu Ting, economist at
Bank of America Corp., wrote in a note today.

“With an increasingly series of comparison officials (tigers)
being arrested, a anti-corruption debate has dealt a blow to
fixed-asset investment expansion due to supervision officials and
state-owned enterprises’ executives’ inaction possibly because
they are in fear of crime charges or since they are not
financially motivated,” Lu wrote.

Tongling allocated Wei as boss in 2003 before
promoting him to authority in 2007, according to a annual
report. Tongling’s operations are normal with Vice Chairman Yang
Jun named as behaving chairman, a association matter said.
