Guanwei Recycling Corp. Believes Recent Bank of China Actions Brighten Business Outlook

FUQING CITY, CHINA--(Marketwire - Jun 13, 2012) - Guanwei Recycling Corp. (NASDAQ: GPRC), China's leading clean tech manufacturer of recycled low density polyethylene (LDPE), said today it believes the recent announcement by the central bank of China of a quarter-percentage-point cut in its benchmark lending and deposit rates may prove helpful to China's economy and, in particular, several of Guanwei's customers.

"The decisions by the central bank, which include providing banks the ability to offer discounts to the key lending rate, as well as a recent government decision to speed up certain project approvals, should make it easier for a number of our customers to plan and grow their businesses against the backdrop of what has become the most difficult economic environment in China since 2008," stated Mr. Chen Min, CEO of the Company.

He added, "While we believe these actions provide good news for Guanwei's business, it is too soon to quantify. However, we are in regular contact with our customers in more than ten different industries and well positioned to benefit from an improving environment wherever it develops most strongly."
