"I am very pleased that the Company has delivered strong performance in this quarter," said Mr. Xiaojun Zhu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of China HGS. "During the second quarter, we sold a significant portion of commercial units located in Yang County Pearl Garden Project and successfully delivered two municipal roads constructed for the local government. We also experienced significant sales progress in our newly constructed Mingzhu Beiyuan and Oriental Garden real estate projects. These strong results demonstrate that our growth strategy is working well and our execution is effective."  "As the government is cautiously implementing new policies and strategies to manage a stable economic growth in China, new catalysts will drive the growth. We have confidence that our strategy focusing on the real estate market in Tier 3 and Tier 4 cities and counties in China remains sound and effective going forward." Mr. Zhu continued. "For example, the new airport for the greater Hanzhong area is near its completion and is expected to be in operation in the second half of this year. The new airport will offer several direct flights daily from Tier 1 cities such as Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen, and many other regional flights, which we believe will add new catalysts to the economic growth in the greater Hanzhong area. We expect that the regional economy in the area which is our major market will get a boost with the new catalysts." concluded Mr. Xiaojun Zhu.
