“I believed that this book is, upto now currently, the book that contains the fullest and most extensive introduction to China Petroleum and Petrochemical Industries. It will help overseas international petroleum (oil, gas) and petrochemical & chemical companies to better understand China. In particular, the book will be very beneficial and helpful to those who wish to cooperate more with Chinese companies or make investments in China. Thanks for your good book and work which will help the international world to better understand China.” - Professor Zheng of China National Petrochemical & Chemical Planning Institute
