The year 2016 was the first year of China’s 13th Five Year Plan. It was an important year for the country’s engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) industry, as it ventured into new business models domestically and internationally.

Increase in household spending has, in turn, increased the demand for remodeling of houses.
