RIO DE JANEIRO Cheap Air Max 90 Shoes , July 24 (Xinhua) -- Rio de Janeiro's 2016 Olympic athletics stadium will be reopened to the public by mid-2014 under a refurbishment plan approved by local officials on Wednesday.

But the Joao Havelange stadium, known locally as the Engenhao after the neighborhood in which it is located, will not be fully functional until November 2014.

"The renovation proposal that has been chosen offers the advantage of a shorter interruption period," Rio's urban development watchdog Riourbe said in a statement.

"It will allow fans to safely attend matches by the first half of next year, while meeting all health and safety guidelines."

The Engenhao was closed in March after an independent engineer's report showed the venue's roof could collapse due to structural problems.

Built for the 2007 Pan-American Games Cheap Air Max Shoes , the stadium is set to have its capacity increased from 47,000 to 60,000 to host track and field events at the Rio Olympics.

The iconic Maracana stadium, which was reopened in June after three years of construction work, will host the Games' opening and closing ceremonies as well as the Olympic and Paralympic football tournaments.

The Engenhao's refurbishment will be undertaken by the Engenhao consortium Cheap Nike Air Max 2018 Womens , formed by Brazilian constructors Odebrecht and OAS.

Work will be supervised by German engineering firm SBP, responsible for identifying the defects in March.

Riourbe added that additional work, unrelated to the roof, will begin in 2015 to meet International Olympic Committee guidelines.

TIANJIN Cheap Nike Air Max Womens , Sept. 9 (Xinhua) -- Premier Li Keqiang said Tuesday that recent anti-trust probes had not targeted specific firms or industries, and foreign companies accounted for only 10 percent of those involved.

By cutting red tape and strengthening monitoring in the past year, China has tried to cultivate an easy, fair and competitive business climate, the premier told a group of business leaders ahead of the Summer Davos forum.

"He described the rules apply to everyone," Kleinfeld told Xinhua. "The premier has emphasized very strong desire to push reforms and to make a level play field. I feel very welcome and so do the colleagues."
