Qinzhou (China): Tan Sri Ong Ka Ting, the Prime Minister’s Special Envoy to China, led a Malaysian delegation of corporate leaders on a study tour of Qinzhou Industrial Park beginning from March 5. The delegates were from the Rimbunan Hijau Group, S P Setia, IJM Corporation and Jasa Kita Berhad.
The party was received by the Secretary of the Qinzhou Municipality Mr Zhang Xiaoqin.
The on-the-spot visit gave them a deeper understanding of the iconic Malaysia-China joint-venture project which is fast taking shape in Qinzhou, a coastal city in the south-western province of Quangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region of China.
The visit also helped to make arrangement and coordination work for the visit by Prime Minister Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak in April for the official launch of the Qinzhou Industrial Park together with Chinese leaders.
The Malaysian and Chinese sides also made some improvements on the MoU of Cooperation signed earlier in Kuala Lumpur to facilitate the establishment and launching of the China-Malaysia Joint Investment Company.
Besides gaining a better understanding of the Qinzhou Industrial Park, the study tour was significant as it helped to strengthen the foundation of co-operation in making the Qinzhou Industrial Park a success.
Signing of MoU: Rimbunan Hijau Group Executive Chairman Tan Sri Sir Tiong Hiew King and Qinzhou Mayor Xiao Yingzi exchange copies of the MoU after the signing ceremony on March 6. The signing ceremony was witnessed by Tan Sri Ong Ka Ting and Zhang Xiaoqin.
