●China sovereign fund boosts resource interests

China's 200-billion-dollar sovereign wealth fund is pouring money into resources firms to quench the Asian giant's thirst for raw materials and diversify its investments, analysts said Thursday. In the past three months alone, China Investment Corp (CIC) has invested more than four billion dollars in companies in Canada, Indonesia and Hong Kong with interests in coal, copper and iron ore.
