NANNING: Five companies which are among the first batch of investors in the China-Malaysia Qinzhou Industrial Park have expressed their intention to start with a total investment of 2.5 billion yuan (RM1.2bil).
Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said he gathered this from a briefing by representatives and officials from the industrial park and Qinzhou city government yesterday.
“I was informed that the companies would increase their investments up to 10 billion yuan (RM4.9bil) in future. This will be a good start to the project.
“They also told me that they received good support from both the Chinese central and provincial governments in terms of logistics and incentives, which will make the industrial park even more attractive,” he said during his official visit to China yesterday.
The industrial park with a total area of 55sq km in China’s Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region will be developed by Qinzhou Development (Malaysia) Consortium Sdn Bhd and Qinzhou Jingu Investment Co Ltd under a 49% to 51% share arrangement.
The park is the first government-to-government initiative between China and Malaysia. It is the third such industrial park project that China has entered with a foreign country after the China-Singapore Suzhou Industrial Park and China-Singapore Tianjin Eco-City.
Besides this industrial park, the Malaysia-China Kuantan Industrial Park (KIP) will be developed as a sister industrial park to enhance bilateral trade relations and investments.
