I wrote a post today about cats in Korea, and coincidentally found this article in Korean on pets in China too that is also pretty good news for pets in general. Here's a bit.
The pet market in China has increased from 4.6 billion yuan in 2006 to 7 billion in 2007, and 10 billion ($1.1 billion) in 2008, and the number of pets in 2008 is now 100 million. According to the Japanese Forbes, by 2010 there are expected to be 150 million pets, and the pet market should reach 40 billion yuan ($5.9 billion).
