They are presently talking on how they can uphold the level of their economy and to further improve on it in the next five-Year plan, a blueprint for economic and social development between now and 2016 to 2020 will be drawn up.
There was a publication on Xinhua – news agency, on Saturday 10th October, 2015 by the China’s chief economist, Ma Jun, that one of the many areas they are going to focus in order to boost their economy include ventures in capital investment , Internet and green finance.

Types of Domain Name Chinese Investors Purchases:
As you may aware, they have peculiar type of domains they venture into. You may like to have the idea on the type of their peculiar domain names. Generally, Chinese investors likes short domains, especially numbers and presently, they are going for four numeric NNNN and letters LLLL and in most cases they go for TLDs such as .com .net, .cc, and .cn as their major pursuits.
Though, I have mentioned these in some of my previous articles, and I will feel unjustified if I failed to mention it here once again, in case you have not read any of my previous articles on Chinese investors.
Type of domains the Chinese investors are buying exclude the Vowels A, E, I, O, U and letter V and incase of numeric, they don’t like double zeros - 00 and 4. Double Zeros and 4 means bad luck and they are trying as much as possible to avoid those characters.
You can venture into three characters in any form or pattern and the latest now are four characters. However, I can vouch for only one TLD which is .com for quick sale.
