Among them, a contribution Hony 113 million expected annual rate of return of 15% in the heavy machine plan by the end of 2015 listed three new board.

But with the United Heavy Machinery sprint three new board is blocked, the program read: major shareholders repurchase will be the way to achieve out in 2017. But so far, the project still failed to exit.
