Foreign-funded enterprises in Shanghai see slowdown

Conditions of foreign-funded enterprises in Shanghai have deteriorated in the past four months amid the global financial crisis, according to Xinhua news.

In the first 11 months of 2008, operating income of those enterprises jumped 17.7 percent and their profit rose 9 percent, significantly lower than last year's 25.8 percent and 67.6 percent respectively.
