Property prices in 70 cities gained 6.4 percent in December from a year earlier, slowing for an eighth month, China Information News, the statistic bureau’s newspaper, reported today. Separately, Shanghai will this year prepare for a trial property tax, becoming one of the first cities in the nation to introduce the measure aimed at curbing “speculative” investment, Mayor Han Zheng said in a speech to the Municipal People’s Congress yesterday, without giving details.

Beijing Originwater Technology Co. (300070 CH), a partner with Mitsubishi Rayon Co. in a wastewater-treatment venture, advanced 0.9 percent to 113 yuan. The company forecast that 2010 net income will have increased by as much as 80 percent to 193 million yuan ($29.2 million) because of increased sales.
