HANZHONG, China, August 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — China HGS Real Estate Inc. (NASDAQ: HGSH) (“China HGS” or the “Company”), a leading regional real estate developer headquartered in Hanzhong City, Shaanxi Province, China, today announced that the Company was in process of signing two project agreements with local government to rebuild large-scale shanty areas located in Hanzhong City.

In the Circular, the State Council also indicated that the government will optimize investment agendas to allocate more funds for shantytown reforms and encourage financial institutions to strengthen loan support for such projects.
“We are excited by the local government’s shanty area rebuilding plan,” commented Mr. Xiaojun Zhu, Chief Executive Officer of China HGS Real Estate, Inc. “We will actively participate in the Shantytown reforming projects and provide a better living environment for the local residences. We remain focused on providing quality housing with affordable pricing for growing new urban residents in these regions,” concluded Mr. Xiaojun Zhu, Chief Executive Officer of China HGS Real Estate, Inc.
