In our projected plan to raise investments in China to 7 billion by 2014, we invested about $1.35 billion dollars for a new facility in China. We have already built one facility there and we this project would be our second facility that we are projecting to build. Chinese retail spending in June rose 17.7 percent over last year. We feel confidence with such increase in spending that our project will be successful when it is finished. Project Analysis
