Chinese officials say Christian-run businesses good for China

Link to an article by Mats Tunehag -  “Christian faith may sound like an unlikely component in China's future economic success. But the notion that newfound faith can inspire a workforce to increased levels of productivity is being taken seriously not only by Christian businessmen, but by China's Communist - and officially atheist - leaders.”
BBC ran a story on August 11 called Christian faith plus Chinese productivity. Those of us who have studied and observed Christian business ethics and transformation of societies – in history and around the world - are not surprised to find a correlation. Now even atheist and communist Chinese officials are saying the same.
The article says that workers who become Christians assume responsibility, they develop a good work ethic and are also eager to tell co-worker about their newfound faith.
Weng-Jen Wau is the general manager of a manufacturing plant which produces industrial valves for 5 million US dollars per month. He shares that when staff  convert to Christianity, their attitude towards their work is transformed.
"If you're a Christian you're more honest, with a better heart," he says. "The people who aren't Christians aren't responsible. I think it's very different.
