According to Adam Roseman and the ARC Investment Partners newsletter, investment in water facilities located in Chinese cities is on the rise. From 2011 to 2015, they expect these investments to be at least 500 billion to 600 billion yuan, as a senior expert from China’s Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development recently said.
China has, at the moment, about 4000 water plants. The technology at these, however, is not advanced at the moment, as reported by Shao Yisheng, the vice dean of the China Urban Planning and Design Institute.
During the country’s 12th five-year plan, they plan to upgrade about 2000 water plants. Another 2,358 water plants will be built with a combined capacity of producing 40 million cubic meters. China also plans to upgrade and build 150,000 kilometers of water pipe over this five year period.
