KUALA LUMPUR: Property developer Country Garden Holdings Co Ltd has stopped providing free flights to bring in potential buyers from mainland China to its sales gallery in Iskandar Malaysia, Johor, which previously formed part of its marketing campaign to lure investors to buy properties in itsCountry Garden Holdings Co Ltd development in the Strait of Johor.
“Since March 13, 2017, our sales galleries in China have ceased all travel-related support services for mainland Chinese travelling to Forest City. This means mainland Chinese buyers who are interested in the Forest City project will have to find their own way to our sales gallery in Iskandar Malaysia,” Country Garden said in a statement yesterday.
The Forest City development comprises four man-made islands sandwiched between Johor and Singapore, with a land area measuring 1,386ha, about three times the size of Sentosa Island.
The mammoth project, costing US$100 billion (RM443 billion), was in the limelight recently after Beijing introduced tighter rules to curb capital flight, which was estimated by the Institute of International Finance to have reached a record US$725 billion last year.
Last month, Country Garden closed its Forest City sales galleries in China as the government launched a crackdown on capital flight by banning its citizens from converting yuan into other currencies for overseas property purchases.

The landscaped lawns and flowering shrubs of Country Garden Holdings Co.’s huge property showroom in southern Malaysia end abruptly at a small wire fence. Beyond, a desert of dirt stretches into the distance, filled with cranes and piling towers that the Chinese developer is using to build a $100 billion city in the sea.
While Chinese home buyers have sent prices soaring from Vancouver to Sydney, in this corner of Southeast Asia it’s China’s developers that are swamping the market, pushing prices lower with a glut of hundreds of thousands of new homes. They’re betting that the city of Johor Bahru, bordering Singapore, will eventually become the next Shenzhen.
“These Chinese players build by the thousands at one go, and they scare the hell out of everybody,” said Siva Shanker, head of investments at Axis-REIT Managers Bhd. and a former president of the Malaysian Institute of Estate Agents. “God only knows who is going to buy all these units, and when it’s completed, the bigger question is, who is going to stay in them?”

JOHOR BARU: Unfazed by the negative remarks from Singapore’s Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew recently, Iskandar Malaysia will continue to woo investments from real estate companies worldwide.
According to Johor Real Estate and Housing Developers Association (Rehda) chairman Koh Moo Hing, Lee’s adverse comments on Iskandar Malaysia were inaccurate and did not reflect the real situation at the economic corridor in southern Johor.

MALAYSIA is now high on the list of China’s 7th largest property developer to extend its international footprint, with the transformation of a piece of Iskandar Malaysia to become a waterfront development fronting Singapore.
In a recent trip to Guangdong organised by Country Garden Holdings Co Ltd, the contingent of media members from both Malaysia and Singapore were brought on a whirlwind trip across the province, with the priority to have a first hand look at the company’s projects in China.
As “guang” as its name aptly described, Guangdong is certainly vast, and Country Garden’s projects are mostly scattered across the province, reachable within a couple of hours drive. However, it was all worth it to put things into perspective and gave a sneak peek of what was in store for the Country Garden Danga Bay project. Could this be just a promise by foreign parties planning to make a quick buck out of a hot segment of the local property market?
