KUCHING: Naim Group of Companies has entered a collaborative agreement with Beijing Vantone New Concept Infotech Co Ltd, part of China real estate investment company Vantone Holdings Co Ltd.
With business interests ranging from real estate to fund and asset management, Vantone is one of China’s heavyweights in the real estate business.
Naim deputy managing director Christina Wong said the collaboration marked a new chapter for the group and Sarawak’s property scene.
“We are excited about this collaboration as it can add value to the government’s efforts in promoting Sarawak as an attractive destination for property and other investments as well as the Sarawak My Malaysia Second Home Programme.
“We are supportive of the government’s efforts in this regard and will do what we can to help,” she said during the agreement signing ceremony.
Wong said the collaboration was also part of Naim’s increased efforts to expand its market outside Malaysia.
“More importantly, it facilitates the transfer of knowledge and information between the parties, something which is mutually beneficial,” she added.
Beijing Vantone vice general manager Yang Cheng Cheng welcomed the collaboration.
“We are happy with the opportunity to work together with an established industry player in Malaysia such as Naim. There has been an increase in awareness of Sarawak being a good option for investment and also as a retirement venue in China, especially in major cities such as Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou.
“In addition, there has always been a healthy bilateral relationship between Sarawak and China which encourages productive collaborations between parties in these regions. We look forward to a fruitful collaboration ahead,” he said.
Also present at the ceremony were Vantone Group general manager Yan Yong Jun and Bank of China Kuching branch manager Zhang Hong Kun.
