Det Norske Veritas(DNV), Norway-based global provider of services for managing risk, expected to boost its sales in China this year to RMB 1 billion (US$143 million), up 40% from last year's RMB 711 million, said the company's top official.

Currently, Chinese market accounts for more than 10% of DNV's global revenue. Its overall growth in China reached 45%, which is considerably higher than the company's worldwide growth rate of 15% to 16%, according to the DNV's CEO Henrik Madsen.
