Some China-related quotes you may have missed:
US Federal Reserve Chairman, Ben Bernanke, on why China should increase spending:
"Trade surpluses achieved through policies that artificially enhance incentives for domestic saving and the production of export goods distort the mix of domestic industries and the allocation of resources, resulting in an economy that is less able to meet the needs of its own citizens in the longer term."
Glenn Murphy, chief executive of Gap, on his company’s China premiere:
"It’s a big opportunity . . . Chinese consumers love American brands."
Zhang Yi, director of Shanghai Pet Union, on the strict laws for dog ownership:
"Raising a dog is more of a personal decision like raising a baby. Neighbors and a neighborhood committee have no right to decide."
Graeme Rowley, executive director of Fortescue Metals Group, Australia’s third-largest iron ore exporter, on China’s dominance in the iron ore industry:
"The Chinese are definitely large enough as purchasers and as customers to be very dominant in price setting. Next year, it is clear there would be oversupply of iron ore, so there should be one price for China."
