600 Beijing healthcare investors scout potential
31 March, 2008 | DAILY EXPRESS NEWS

Kota Kinabalu: Some 600 delegates from healthcare outlets in China are here to study investment opportunities.

International Group Chairman of Green Century Biotech-China and Malaysia, Datuk Mohd Razef said he believed Sabah has a huge potential in both tourism and MM2H. He said Green Century Healthcare of China choose Sabah over Malacca, Penang, Sarawak and Kuala Lumpur due to potential investments in tourism related industries, prudential business opportunities, higher education and for the Silver Hair programme of the MM2H.

Meanwhile, State Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Datuk Masidi Manjun assured potential participants of the Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) programme that their investment in the programme is really worthwhile.

Speaking at the launching of MM2H Programme Tanjung Dumpil Sunset Beach and Oceanarium Park, Saturday, he said some of the incentives provided include lower taxes on property, automobile ownership and longer visa validity.

"Many visitors have joined the programme, making Sabah their vacation home while others have opted to retire here with their family," he said.

He said transportation infrastructure in the State is also getting better as it go along towards development. The road networks not only connects the State of Sarawak but also to Brunei Darussalam. Sabah is also easily accessible by land, sea or air due to its strategic location in the region.

In addition, Masidi said healthcare and medical facilities are available at all times. "There are many hospitals in major towns throughout Sabah including polyclinics in rural areas as well as private healthcare providers," he said.

He said these facilities offer world class medical services while the doctors give immediate attention at an affordable cost to those seeking treatment and services. In education, the Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) is of international-standard where many foreign exchange students have chosen to pursue their studies here.

For expatriates residing in Sabah, Masidi said there are also international schools available to cater for their educational needs. He said Sabah is a fast developing state with vast opportunities to conduct businesses as many untapped resources and opportunities have yet to be exploited.

Sabah is also home to Mount Kinabalu, the highest peak in Malaysia while World Heritage Site, Pulau Sipadan has among the best diving spots in the world.

It is rich in flora and fauna still undisturbed by rapid development, he said, which is the reason why many researchers and conservationists are flocking to Sabah to study and conduct research for the benefit of humankind.

"The people are renowned for their warmth and friendliness and we are always ready to extend a welcoming hand," he said.

With over more than 30 ethnic groups, he said the state is colourful and rich in heritage not to mention the myriad of celebrations and festivities throughout the year.

Also present were Consul-General of Malaysia in Guangzhou, Roslan Abdul Rahman, Chairman of China Healthcare Association, Chang Fong Lau and Group President of Guangzhou Green Century Healthfood Chainstore Management, Jiang Hong Wei.
