  14. 14. IndustrySpecifics<br />Construction Industry is growing 11% annually,<br />Population is migrating from the countryside to cities (urban places), that represents an increase in the construction in general;<br />Expected to hold the largest share of construction output by 2020, 19% of the world’s market.<br />Only 400 foreign firms invested in construction industry in China;<br />Government of China establish some steps for foreign companies to entry in the construction markets:<br />Sources<br />Sources<br />
  15. 15. China Goes Green<br /><ul><li>US and China signed a $45B in exports. Two-thirds of them involve energy efficiency, emissions reduction and cleantech solutions
  16. 16. US Green building Council has granted LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certificates to 656 projects in China
  17. 17. LEED certification on the rise:</li></ul>Shows that LEED-certified buildings in China are on the rise. <br />There are now around 4 million m2 of LEED rated construction <br />in China when there was virtually none 7 years ago. Source: Ken Langer, EMSI<br />

Special attention should be given to the Shanghai and Beijing as they boost the green construction initiative.<br />Commercial construction segment is the recommended starting point, as projections indicate the highest growth rates (500% in 4 years). <br />Compare and test if the current innovative ideas of the company overcome what’s in the Chinese market currently<br />The world pressure from governments and consumers will push the Green Budget to increase. Taking advantage of this momentum is a good thing<br />96% of the engineering construction companies in China are state owned.
