Three Gorges Area to Close 800 EnterprisesChina will shut down 800 enterprises in the Three Gorges areas in three years, which are losing money and producing heavy pollution.
State-owned enterprises, collective-owned companies and individual firms each make up one third of the total, according to local official sources.
According to state policies, enterprises in the Three Gorges areas that are big polluters and losing money in management are to be closed down instead of moving to other places.
