Although the LOI is not legally binding, we see this as a win-win situation for two companies dedicated to the sustainable economic development of China's environment."

"Given the participation of international landscape architects on the Beijing Olympics and the recent international awards received by Chinese landscape projects, we feel this is a prized market with vast potential, and we greatly value Gaoxin's experience in winning contracts in a thriving market complicated by the challenges of sustainable development," said Mr. Tian.
