Visit of Chinese delegation & 'In principle' agreement to purchase land

China Gateway International (CGI), the AIM listed property company, announces that it has hosted a delegation from the Chinese Peoples Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries, including the Honorary President of the China Friendship Foundation, Madam Li Xiaolin, the daughter of the former President of China Li Xiannian. Also in the delegation were Mr Yao Mingyu, the Vice Chairman and Secretary General of the Chinese People's Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries, and Mr Lu Changhe from the China National Culture and Art Company. The delegates were also accompanied by Mr Hu Yuandong, the Head of the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO) Investment Technology Promotions Office (ITPO), Beijing.

The purpose of the visit was to show the delegation the Company's property at Manston and explain the concept of the China Euro Cultural Industry Hub (CECIH).
The CECIH project plans to attract up to 300 businesses & commercial organisations from China to a purpose built 'Hub' at Manston Business Park. This would be the first of the 'China Gateway' buildings to be constructed.

The Company also announces that an 'in principle' agreement has been reached with East Kent Opportunities (a joint venture between Kent County Council & Thanet District Council) for the purchase of a further 5.5 acres of land (subject to contract) at Manston Business Park, adjacent to the Company's existing land holding.

A further announcement will be made if a Contract to Purchase is entered into.

Ed. Sorry about the delay with this one, I got the press release late but thought it would be of interest to some people published in full, so here it is.

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
