    China factory activity shrinks for fourth month

    A worker assembles a generator at a factory in HefeiBy Kevin Yao BEIJING (Reuters) - China's factory activity shrank for the fourth straight month in April, signaling economic weakness into the second quarter, a preliminary survey showed on Wednesday, although the pace of decline eased helped by policy steps to arrest the slowdown. "It's generally in line (with expectations), reflecting that growth momentum is stabilizing," said Zhou Hao, China economist at ANZ in Shanghai. Hao expected economic growth to pick up slightly to 7.5 percent in the second quarter. MODEST STIMULUS MEASURES China's central bank will cut the amount of deposits rural banks must hold as reserves by between 0.5 and 2 percentage points, it said on Tuesday, the latest in a series of measures to help combat the slowing economy.




    Wal-Mart to report how compliance targets impacted executive pay: WSJ

    A man stands on a skateboard outside a Wal-Mart store in Williston(Reuters) - Wal-Mart Stores Inc is set to report as soon as Wednesday on how its executives performed on their goals to overhaul compliance operations and how that affected their pay, the Wall Street Journal reported. The company's board will issue a securities filing in the coming days that will detail how well executives performed on its compliance goals, such as enhancing its global anti-corruption program, the report cited the retailer's chief compliance officer, Jay Jorgensen, as saying. A representative for Wal-Mart could not be immediately reached for comment outside of regular U.S. business hours. An assessment of compliance objectives will now be part of the company's regular corporate governance, the Journal quoted Jorgensen as saying at the Dow Jones Global Compliance Symposium in Washington on Tuesday.

    Kenya to seek natural gas from Qatar for 700 MW power plant
    Kenya will negotiate the import of natural gas from Qatar Gas to fuel a power station it wants built in the Indian Ocean port city of Mombasa, the president's office said on Tuesday. The gas-powered power plant is part of the government's plans to add 5,000 MW to Kenya's existing 1,664 MW generation capacity by 2017 to accelerate economic growth, which is expected to push Kenya's power demand up to 15,000 MW by 2030.

    Japan's Mizuho names ex-minister as chairwoman in management revamp

    A man is reflected on an advertisement board of Mizuho Financial Group's Mizuho Bank in TokyoBy Taiga Uranaka TOKYO (Reuters) - Scandal-hit Mizuho Financial Group has nominated former economy minister Hiroko Ota as chairwoman, as Japan's second-largest bank strives to improve corporate governance by bringing in more outsiders. Mizuho shareholders will vote on the nomination in June after which Ota, 60, could become one of the highest-ranking women in an industry which only recently started to appoint female executive officers. Mizuho said it handled the matter poorly and that it would revamp management by appointing more outside directors - one of whom would head the board - and change a corporate culture widely criticized as fostering departmental factionalism. "I tried to improve corporate governance but it was not enough.

    Here's How Corporate America's Push to Go Green May Finally Be Working
    It used to be, in America, that having recycling bins tucked away inside businesses, even if they were just some sort of nebulous afterthought, represented a corporation's sense of responsibility to the environment. The contributions seemed particularly limited in the face of constant setbacks, from the oil tanker Exxon Valdez hitting a reef and spilling 11 million gallons of animal-and-plant-destroying crude oil into the Gulf of Alaska in 1989 to President George W. Bush withdrawing in 2001 from the Kyoto Protocol agreement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Today, 25 years after the Exxon Valdez spill, times are changing. Rising concerns of activist investors and the public over fossil fuel–produced carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping greenhouse gas emissions affecting global warming and climate change have brought some seismic shifts in corporate responsibility.

    The Planet Earth Is Trolling American Climate Change Activists
    But, apparently to troll American environmental activists, that warmth was obvious everywhere except the United States. But you will notice the exception that is North America. In January — which was the fourth-warmest January on record — we pointed out that if you lived in America, it didn't seem very warm. But global warming's effects are uneven and disparate.
