Key moments

I am not that optimistic. Talking about revolution in Japan, I think this is a kind of a long shot.
Andy Xie
I think China is facing a huge challenge in this crucial period of time.
Yu Yongding
Our society in Russia has to make a choice: having the policy for state-owned companies or to ask these companies to be more efficient and to impose more straight and tough control in the cost of these companies, to cut any subsidies and to ask these companies to go; or to privatize these companies. Our choice still is not made.
