Fujian authorities may compensate tanners11 November 2009
According to the sources in China, some members of the local authorities in Zhangpu, Fujian Province are considering stopping any further construction of the part-built tannery cluster in the area.
If this decision is confirmed and implemented it will affect a number of tanneries who have already invested significant time and funds constructing new facilities within the proposed cluster site.
It is understood that the local authorities, before they make their final decision on the matter, will have detailed discussions with the tanners who have invested in Zhangpu to hear their comments and will compensate any losses born by those tanneries if the stoppage becomes permanent.
At the moment it is not clear when this situation will be resolved one way or the other.
