The NBS’s entrepreneur confidence index, which measures the views and expectations of entrepreneurs, for the first quarter of 2008 was given as 140.6 points, a one-point rise over the previous quarter. Of the entrepreneurs surveyed at 19,500 companies across China, 56% were optimistic about the overall performance of their industries.
