China shipbuilding giants to invest in shipbuilding industry fund
TIANJIN, Jun 09, 2010 (Xinhua via COMTEX) --
China's two major shipbuilders,
China CSSC Holdings and the China Shipbuilding Industry Corp., are
considering investing in the Tianjin Shipbuilding Industry Fund, said
Cui Jindu, vice major of the coastal city.
The fund, approved by the National Development and Reform
Commission (NDRC), went into operation on December 30, 2009. Its
ultimate intended size is 20 billion yuan and 2.85 billion yuan has
already been raised at the initial stage.
The fund has sent out 45 new-ship orders to domestic
shipbuilders and invested 15 billion yuan in shipbuilding projects to
date. It still has a large number of ship orders in hand.
It is seeking further finance from shipbuilders, banks,
insurers, trust companies, and securities houses to expand capital.
