they may be canceling the Qinghai plant which actually may be better for them; they can reserve money for expanding in the United States and Latin America. I think that may actually be the best move in the medium term. Expansion in geography rather than getting a tiny bit more vertical in their race to be the cheapest. USA and EU value domestic content over being absolutely cheap in solar panels.
