（乔治说他在中国的投资）George said that his investments in China focus on three primary areas. First, it is the infrastructure companies that allows Chinese businesses to operate and expand both inside and outside China. Second, he foucuses on businesses that make and export goods around the world. Finally, he focuses on Chinese businesses that are serving the growing consumer need of Chinese on a local level.
His favorite play on the growth of local markets within China is a supermarket chain-- Lianhua Supermarkets. He is impressed with the fact that sales continue to grow at rates exceeding 16 percent annually and the company has very strong margins. In addition, he notes that the stock is trading at a “70-percent discount
to sales”. Like China Travel, however, this is a lower-priced, more valuable play. He suggests buying Lianhua up to $1.35.
