NWS Holdings to expand its Ports Business in Xiamen
(26 November 2007, Hong Kong) NWS Holdings Limited (“NWS Holdings” or the “Group”; Hong
Kong stock code: 0659) today announced that the Group has signed a strategic cooperation agreement
for developing Haicang Port, Xiamen under the witness of Chairman Hu Jintao and French President
Nicolas Sarkozy with Xiamen Municipal Government and CMA CGM S.A., whereby the parties will
establish a strategic cooperation relationship in terminal construction and shipping operation as to
expand the port business of Haicang Port, Xiamen.
The parties will conclude the project shortly. NWS Holdings will invest and develop deep water
container terminals together with CMA CGM S.A. and Xiamen Haicang Investment General Co. in the
area and target to commence operation in 2009.
Dr Henry Cheng, Chairman of NWS Holdings, said the signing of the strategic cooperation agreement is
in line with the Group’s major direction in investing in infrastructure projects, “Xiamen is a core city
located at the economic zone on the west coast of the Straits, and leveraging on the fine reputations of
the parties, we are confident to turn Xiamen port into an international transshipment hub, and to generate
considerable contributions for the Group.” Dr Cheng continued. NWS Holdings will continue to look for
new projects with high growing potentials, as to grasp the abundant opportunities of the port market in
Mainland China.
NWS Holdings now holds 50% interest of Xiamen New World Xiangyu Terminals Co., Ltd., which
commenced operation in April 1997, and it has an annual handling capacity of one million TEUs. The
signing of the agreement will strengthen the Group’s presence in the port business in Xiamen.
