Yesterday's report 'Anti-business sentiment on the rise over widening wealth gap' on page A2 quoted Executive Council convenor Leung Chun-ying as saying: 'Although the city's currency reserves have increased threefold since 1997, the median household income has decreased.' The report should have quoted Leung as saying: 'Despite the 34 per cent increase in GDP per capita in the 10 years between 1996 and 2006, the earnings from employment of the bottom 30 per cent of our workforce fell.' We regret the error.
