Editor's Note: As the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, which opened on Thursday, continues in Beijing, China Daily asked a number of top executives from international companies to give their impressions of the event and their expectations for the country. We asked five questions, and the answers we were given showed great confidence in China and its business environment under the country's new leadership, set to be elected at the congress.
Q1: Given that China's economic growth cooled to a three-year low of 7.4 percent year-on-year in the third quarter, do you think the country can maintain relatively fast expansion during the coming decade? And do you think China will continue to be an important growth engine, both for the global economy and for your company?
Q2: As wages and operational costs rise, China's export growth is no longer as robust as it was, and domestic consumption is still not strong enough to generate as much growth. Have these developments prompted your company to either delay or cancel any investment plans in the country? If not, why?
