The fat cats have arrived

The fat cats started arriving last night by private jet to join the FORTUNE Global Forum, a three day shmoozefest for senior executives of major corporations and Chinese government leaders.

CNN has a week long series of special programming called 'Eye on China' in which breathless TV presenters will report live from Beige Zhing and uncover the true China behind the headlines.

The image shows a line of corporate jets parked at Beijing Capital Airport, and was taken from the China Daily's website.
