SiennyLovesDrawing is feeling positive with HK Private Equity Fund diversifies into Malaysia ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡ฐ

SiennyLovesDrawing has been invited & attended the launch ceremony of the Asia-Pacific One Belt One Road Tourism Industry Fund on 14 October 2016.

~~ Evergreen Offshore Inc zooms in on Malaysiaโ€™s tourism sector for a long term gain ~~

Evergreen Offshore Inc. (โ€œEvergreenโ€ or the โ€œCompanyโ€) is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Evergreen Group, it wasย incorporated at the British Cayman Islands in May 2012. Evergreenโ€™s primary businessย involves Enterprises Analysis, Private Equity Funds & Listing Operations.

At present, Evergreen holds 2 Trust Units:

i. Evergreen Offshore Fund Trust

ii. Asia-Pacific One Beltย One Road Tourism Industry Fund

To date, Evergreen has a total of USD200 million in capitalย commitments & has invested over USD50 million in the 1st phase of its investment blueprint.

The Launch of Asia-Pacific One Belt One Road Tourism Industry Fund, 14 October 2016

Evergreen has just launched in Malaysia its private equity fund which worth HKD10 billion named Asia Pacific One Beltย One Road Tourism Industry Fund (โ€œthe Fundโ€) on 14 Oct 2016. It is a private equity fund which targeting the tourism sector inย Malaysia. By building on the existing strong bilateral relations between China ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ณ & Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ , Evergreen aims toย further boost the relationship by investing in Malaysiaโ€™s tourism sector for long term gain. Theย decision to debut the Fund in Malaysia was strongly backed by the evident growth of the Malaysia tourismย industry & the Malaysian Governmentโ€™s plan to increase its investment in developing the sector.

โ€œThe Fund is set up with a long-term vision to promote the tourism sector in countries and regionsย along the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road,โ€ said Mr. Davy Chan, Chairman of the Evergreenย Group.

โ€œThrough our partners here in Malaysia, as well as our own findings, we understand thatย the Malaysian Government will increase its investment in the tourism industry.โ€

Tourism and travels are Malaysiaโ€™s third largest source of foreign exchange earnings, which stoodย at RM61 billion, 5.7% of its total gross domestic product (GDP). The number is projected to reachย RM262.2 billion, 15.8% of its GDP by 2025.

โ€œBy working with Hong Kong ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡ฐ & Mainland China ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ณ, Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ will gain better financial strength thusย strengthening its existing foundation & infrastructure in the hopes of achieving more integratedย productivity & attracting investment,โ€ added by Mr. Davy Chan in his speech.


One Belt One Road (“OBOR”) initiative is a strategic development by the Chinese Government in 2013, under the leadership of its president, Xi Jing Ping. The far-reaching transformational development will be the cornerstone that leads the country on the path of modernisation & bolsters its leadership position in the world.

On land, OBOR connects China to Central Asia through its Silk Road Economic Belt.

On sea, OBOR connects China to Southeast Asian countries, Africa & Europe through its 21st Century Maritime Silk Road Economic Belt.

Meanwhile, the visionary development initiatives will build the “maritime transport corridors” that connect important ports along the trading route to create an international economic collaboration.

Malaysia is strategically situated on the south belt. In addition to the Chinese Government, many private sectors, including Evergreen, have come together & aspire to contribute to the success of the ambitious initiative by investing in relevant projects in the OBOR trade route.


Evergreen is already in talks with a few potential project owners who are directly involved in theย tourism development projects. Evergreen has allocated HKD2 billion from the Fund toย invest in Malaysian projects ahead of its other targeted markets including Thailand ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ญ & Vietnam ๐Ÿ‡ป๐Ÿ‡ณ.ย The Fund is managed by Ever Centurion Limited based in Hong Kong. AFV Consultants Groupย Sdn Bhd is exclusive strategy partner in Malaysia involved in project assessment & due diligenceย process.

There is no better place than Hong Kong, with its โ€˜One Country, Two Systemsโ€™ policy, where oneย can access such an opportunity.ย Through the Fund, Evergreen will take advantage of its vast & powerful network in Hong Kong & China to attract the key investors from both countries toย invest in promising tourism related projects in Malaysia. The Fund is a capital market instrument & will be working with Hong Kong listed entities toย protect the robustness of projects in Malaysia.

Since there are many potential tourism development & related projects waiting to be developed, it foresees that the OBOR initiative will further promote economic growth in Malaysia.
