Drought in China Incurs more than RMB 600 mln in Losses?

Question by onlyonce: Drought in China Incurs more than RMB 600 mln in Losses?
(China Knowledge, Aug 17, 2006) – A serious drought has created direct economic losses of over RMB 400 million and RMB 246 million in Sichuan and Chongqing respectively, according to a Xinhua report on Saturday.
Xinhua also reported that the drought, which is the worst in 50 years, has affected more than 1.3 million hectares of farming land. Many farmers in Sichuan and Chongqing have lost their entire corps, which have withered from the lack of water and the intense heat.
The Yangtze River in Chongqing was also hit by the drought, with its water level dipping by a 20-year low of 4.12 m in July.
More than 10 million people in Sichuan and Chongqing face a shortage of drinking water. Sichuan plans to create artificial rain for its 12 cities, while Chongqing is tapping ground water and improving water conservation facilities.

Q&A: Has China already got more military equipment as it is 20 times cheaper to build a missile in China?

Question by Mr Miyagi wants a kiss: Has China already got more military equipment as it is 20 times cheaper to build a missile in China?
Many people point to China’s military budget when comparing it to other nations but military equipment is made much more cheaper in china. To build a cruise or nuclear missile in the USA they first have to ask the Chinese if they can use their rare earth materials (98% of all rare earth materials come from China). The Chinese can make everything from jet fighters to jeeps for a fraction of the cost of ther nations. If you account for how cheap they can produce military equipment how long before they are the number 1 military power? That is if they are not already.

Best answer:

Answer by Satellite
No. China’s military hardware and logistics is dwarfed compared to the US. The near entirety of the Chinese forces is comprised of unarmoured infantry.
