From then on, the Group has gone for the international capital markets. This achievement not only enhances the Group’s business governance, but also increases Mingfa’s brand awareness in China's real estate market. The Group began to develop its businesses starting from 1994 in Xiamen, and later in 2002 expanded the businesses to the country’s fastest-growing area – pan-Yangtze River Delta region, and we will further enhance the investments in this region over the next several years.

The average price per square meter in 2009 was RMB 5,150, dropped by 44.0% compared with 2008, mainly due to increase in the percentage of sales of housing, while the average selling price of which is generally lower than that of the commercial property.
