A man exits a subway station at a residential area in Shanghai January 10, 2011. China is set to further clamp down on the country's buoyant housing market by imposing a long-debated property tax for the first time in the southwestern city of Chongqing, domestic media reported on Monday. China has debated for many years about having a property tax but held back out of fears it may seriously harm the market. Domestic media reports in recent months suggest, however, that China's government is finally warming to the idea and may impose a property tax on a trial basis in several cities including Chongqing, Shanghai, Beijing and Shenzhen.

Property magnate Vincent Tchenguiz holds a copy of the ruling as he poses for a photograph outside High Court in London March 16, 2011. The Tchenguiz brothers, the property magnates briefly arrested in a UK fraud probe into Iceland's Kaupthing, won the right to pursue a claim of over 1 billion pounds ($1.6 billion) in damages from the failed bank. The English High Court on Wednesday rejected an application by Kaupthing Bank to dismiss the claim for the technical legal reason that it did not have the jurisdiction to hear it. The case will now proceed to be heard in England. REUTERS/Andrew Winning (BRITAIN - Tags: BUSINESS CRIME LAW)
