TIANJIN: Malaysian businessman Mah Sau Cheong will begin building a RMB15bil (RM9.3bil) integrated seawater desalination and salt-making plant here after signing a construction and operation agreement with the Tianjin municipal government yesterday.

This is the first zero-liquid discharge seawater desalination project in China.

The agreement for the first phase of construction and operation of the treatment plant costing RMB5.5bil (RM3.4bil) was signed between Mah of Xianda (Tianjin) Seawater Resour­ces Development Company Ltd and Wang Zheng, director of Tianjin Economic-Technological Development Area.

The signing ceremony for the first of three phases of development was witnessed by Malaysian Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and Li Hongzhong, party secretary of the Communist Party of Tianjin.

According to Michael Mah, the son of the low-profile businessman, the construction of the first phase of the development would take 30 months to complete. It is expected to be operational in 2019.

The Xianda project is expected to provide industrial water and demineralised water to Tianjin Nangang Industrial Zone, a 200 sq km world class petrol-chemical manufacturing complex next to Bohai Bay in northeastern China.

Investors grappling with Evergrande fallout weigh risk of wider pain



NEW YORK: Investors unnerved by the fallout from heavily indebted Chinese real estate company Evergrande were gauging the potential for a wider shakeout after a selloff hit stocks around the world.

For now, many U.S.-based investors believe there is little chance that the woes of Evergande, China’s second-largest property developer, could morph into a systemic crisis reminiscent of the 2008 collapse of Lehman Brothers.

Still, with valuations on U.S. equities stretched on a historical basis and an unwind of the Federal Reserve’s easy money policies looming, some worry that a sudden drop in risk appetite could leave global markets vulnerable to a broader selloff.
