A delegation from the China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation visited the ailing Uljanik and Treći Maj shipyards on Tuesday. The goal of their visit to the two shipyards in Pula and Rijeka is to ascertain the exact financial standing of the two companies.
CSIC, which is China's biggest company and ranks among the 500 strongest companies in the world according to Forbes, is considering a possible investment into the two shipyards or some other form of partnership. The Chinese delegation is scheduled to hold meetings with government, Uljanik and Treći Maj officials at the Economy Ministry tomorrow.
Yesterday CSIC chairman Hu Wenming was received by Prime Minister Andrej Plenković. He said after their meeting that his team will give both shipyards serious consideration after establishing a clear overview of their true financial standing. A decision on whether or not the Chinese will invest into the two shipyards is expected in some ten days’ time.
