The fact that this was my third trip to China in twelve months demonstrates that it is becoming an increasingly interesting place. This time we started in the capital of Yunnan Province, Kunming, and proceeded from there to Dali, Lijang and Zhongdian before going to Beijing. The trip coincided with the 17th Party Congress of the Chinese Communist Party, where the policies for the next five years will be laid down. Slow political progress and fast economic progress were the outcomes. Telecommunications was not a particularly hot issue but nevertheless, in and around the Congress, interesting facts, figures and policies could be picked up.
