The Wider Image: China's slowing economy: the view from the Henan heartland
Interior designer Zhang Chenxuan, who has run an interior design business in Zhengzhou for seven year, poses in an apartment his company is fitting out in a high-rise in Zhengzhou, Henan province, China, February 20, 2019. Zhang's income has shrunk by 20-30 percent since last year as orders from new home buyers fell, he said. "Clients nowadays only want something practical and simple, that saves money, instead of going for the luxurious," Zhang said. "Eighty percent of my customers now complain that they are very poor, that they don't have the money for proper furnishings." REUTERS/Thomas Peter SEARCH "CHINA HENAN" FOR THIS STORY.
