Malaysia's PM Najib Razak, said in Beijing that he would like China's Dalian Wanda Dalian property group to develop a prime plot of land in Kuala Lumpur, but understood that Wanda's participation in the project would require Chinese Government approval.
The Star reported:
On whether the Chinese government would endorse Dalian Wanda Group’s investment in Bandar Malaysia, Najib said: “We will refer to the Chinese government based on the final settlement since it requires their support.”
While it is true that Najib's management of the project is
confused to say the least, his statement above was made in Beijing and in the presence of Wang Jianlin,China's richest man who is supposed to own a significan part and control Dalian Wanda.
Wang did not correct of object to what Najib had to say,and therefore Wanda's claim to be a non-government entity is in doubt.That claim is the basis for it obtaining Australian Government approval for projects in Australia,and those approvals must now be revoked or at minimum suspended pending review.
