NewOcean is a Hong Kong-listed company primarily engaged in the sales and marketing of liquefied petroleum gas and natural gas, oil and electronic products.

Kuantan Port Consortium is jointly owned by IJM Corporation and Hong Kong’s Beibu Gulf Holding (Hong Kong) on a 60:40 equity holdings basis. The Malaysian government has a special rights share in the consortium.

The other deals announced include a 1.95 billion ringgit investment by Asas Panorama Sdn Bhd for the development of the third phase of the Malaysia-China Kuantan Industrial Park (MCKIP 3), planned for 680 acres of land.

China’s Zhaoqing Junhong will invest 1.6 billion ringgit for a facility to manufacture semi steel radial tyres at the MCKIP 2.
