SHANGHAI, China (AP) _ Incomes in Shanghai, China's business capital, rose 13.1 percent in 1997 to surpass $3,000 per person for the first time, the government said Monday.

Total economic output by the city is expected to total some 336 billion yuan ($40 billion) when final figures are compiled, the Shanghai State Statistical Bureau said.

The per-person figure should come out to be about 25,000 yuan, or $3,010, the bureau said. About 14 million people live in Shanghai.

Economic output in 1996 was 290 billion yuan and per-capita income was 22,275 yuan.

Shanghai receives preferential treatment by the central government, including reduced taxes and streamlined approval for large-scale investments.

Foreign investment in Shanghai last year held steady at 1996 levels at $4.7 billion, the newspaper Jiefang Daily said.
