PM Dung continues US visit

26/06/2008 -- 8:45 PM
Washington D.C (VNA) – Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung and his entourage met overseas Vietnamese businesses and intellectuals in Houston, Texas after leaving Washington D.C on June 25 afternoon (local time).

At the meeting, PM Dung underscored that the Party and State have placed importance on the national solidarity policy with the aim of building Vietnam a strong country of wealthy people and just, democratic and civilised society.

“The overseas Vietnamese community is an inseparable part of the Vietnamese nation”, the PM said, adding that the Vietnamese State always has responsibility for them.

According to PM Dung, almost all of the community of 3.2 million overseas Vietnamese, including half in the US , have well integrated into their residential countries and whole-heartedly love their mother land.

Among them, about 400,000 people holding university degrees and higher have been making great contributions to the bilateral cooperation between Vietnam and the US , the PM noted.

The PM also expressed his wish that overseas Vietnamese would continue solidarity and mutual assistance, and maintain the traditional cultural characters and their love to the homeland, thus contributing to their residential countries’ development and serving as a bridge for the bilateral relations between Vietnam and these countries.

Earlier, in Washington D.C. , PM Dung attended an education meeting education held by the US Department of State where the two sides agreed to increase the number of Vietnamese students in US universities and colleges, especially PhD students.

He also took part at a US-Vietnam business forum by the US-ASEAN Business Council in coordination with the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and met with several leading groups of the US .


The government leader called on US universities to boost cooperation with Vietnam , particularly in science, technology, postgraduate education and high quality human resources training.

Following the forum, Vietnamese Deputy Minister of Education and Training Pham Vu Luan and US Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs James K. Glassman signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on education cooperation.

Under the MoU, the two nations will encourage more and deeper cooperation between US and Vietnamese universities, increase the number of Vietnamese students studying at American universities and colleges, and develop training programmes for Vietnamese students.

Addressing the US-Vietnam Business Forum, which saw the attendance of numerous leaders of US leading corporations, PM Dung said the two nations will continue to promote their economic, trade and investment cooperation, considering it a foundation for deepening cooperative ties in all fields.

“Thee Government of Vietnam will strictly implement its commitments to the international community and speed up the improvement of institutions and administrative reform in a bid to create a more open, transparent and favourable investment environment for foreign investors, including those from the US ,” he stressed.

After attending the forum, the PM witnessed the signing of a memorandum of understanding on educational cooperation between the US Department of State and the Vietnamese Ministry of Education and Training, and a letter of intent on the supply of 10 Boeing 737 planes to Vietnam .

The inked agreements also include a strategic partnership deal between Vietnam Partners and the Corporation for Financing and Promoting Technology (FPT), and a MoU on a joint plan of Tano Capital Llc and Global C&D to invest in a tourism complex in Vietnam ’s central Quang Nam province.(Dragon Beach Project-$16billion value) [Big Grin]

PM Dung is scheduled to attend a seminar dubbed “Education Initiative with Vietnam ” and a business forum, and meet with leaders from US leading groups on June 26.

US firms to invest $8b in Quang Nam

(03-10-2008)

QUANG NAM — The central province of Quang Nam has just submitted a US$8 billion project to the Government.

The provincial People’s Committee recently reported that two American companies, Tano Capital LLC and Global C&D, asked for permission to build a tourism, entertainment and service project over an area of 400ha in Dien Duong Commune, Dien Ban District.

"Dragon Beach is a big project. The province does not have enough authority to decide on it so we have to wait for input from the Government," said an official from the committee.

According to the submission, Dragon Beach will be an ecological tourism and entertainment complex along with an international convention centre.

"The complex will be a beautiful sight. Most hotels in the complex will be five stars," said Nguyen Oanh Thi, an official from the Foreign Economic Section under the provincial Planning and Investment Department.

Upon completion, the Dragon Beach complex will supply many services relating to hotels, restaurants, bars, entertainment and electronic games for foreigners.

"We already sent documents relating to the projects to relevant ministries for consideration. After that, the Ministry of Planning and Investment will send the project to the Government," said Le Minh Anh, chairman of the provincial People’s Committee.

Anh said that such a massive project in the central region would bring jobs to local people.

He added that it should also help the province to further develop.

GREATER CHINA CORPORATION LTD.

Business Overview - October 2008


Greater China Corporation Ltd. (“GCCL”) is being relisted as a publicly traded Venture Capital Company domiciled in Bermuda with a wholly owned subsidiary, Greater China Corporation (“GCC”) in Delaware. Corporate offices are located in Rockefeller Center, New York City. Even though the name is linked to China its activities are global. GCCL draws upon its valuable network of directors and advisors and access to financial and strategic relationships to build successful enterprises around proven entrepreneurs. GCCL provides a disciplined and supportive system for developing these companies and achieving a timely liquidity event. This exit can be through sale of the company to a financial or strategic buyer, through a public listing supported by a distribution of some of GCC’s ownership of the company to GCCL shareholders or through a roll-up into GCCL on an exchange of share basis.

GCCL is different from traditional Venture Capital companies in several important ways:

1. It is a corporation and not a fund. A fund is limited in its life (usually 7-10 years) which often forces the timing of investment and divestiture decisions that may not be optimal for creating value.

2. As a corporation, GCCL has the flexibility of adding or changing management, directors, advisors and shareholders at any time; whereas a fund is normally locked into its management and ownership structure.

3. As a public company, liquidity is continually available to shareholders and reflects the value of underlying holdings, unlike a fund where liquidity and value are only achieved at the time of sale and distribution of holdings.

4. GCCL is focused on starting companies around successful entrepreneurs and opportunities and not investing in existing companies. The founding of a company represents the lowest cost of entry and therefore the highest potential return. A typical VC firm invests in existing companies, at a higher valuation and often with a requirement to spend additional resources correcting mistakes that could have been avoided if the company had been started with the right initial ingredients.

GCCL had a number of underlying projects and companies that are currently under development - some of these on a fast-track basis. These include:

1. TongRenTang GCC formed the TongRenTang Wellness Corporation in partnership with TRT USA Corp. This business, owned equally by the two partners, is developing spa-like wellness centers based upon the treatments and products of China’s famous herbal medicines. TongRenTang is China’s oldest and most prestigious brand name. The company was started in 1669 under the Qing Dynasty. Today it is a $10 billion business in China and internationally.

A major international hotel group has submitted a proposal to GCCL for a joint-venture TongRenTang Wellness Spa.

2. Dragon Beach Development Corporation GCC developed this company with Tano Capital, its financing partner, and Global C&D, Inc., a real-estate development company with major activities in Vietnam. An agreement has been signed with the Province of Quang Nam for the development of 1,000 + acres of prime beach-front property which includes a petition to the Central Government for nine major casino/hotel licenses. Tano was started by Charles Johnson, who was Co-President of Franklin Templeton Investments (NYSE:BEN), (Franklin-Templeton.com), with $600 billion under management.

This project has been approved by the Province of Quang Nam and all required VN Ministries and a final Investment License is expected to be received during October 2008.

2. Greater China Art Fund (“GCAF”) GCC has reached an agreement to form GCAF with New York’s leading contemporary Chinese art gallery, the Elizabeth Wang Gallery. GCAF is designed to become a publicly traded company and to attract both collectors and investors from China and Asia. GCAF has several unique features:
a. Generates current income from leasing and sub-leasing art, often providing an option to purchase.
b. Ability to finance major art lease contracts to provide additional working capital.
c. Acquires art directly from artists on a basis that provides them with a steady income, health insurance and retained ownership of selected works.
d. Works with museums to lease their excess art to provide them with income, and then sub-leases this art to clients.
e. Works with collectors to acquire and lease art thereby providing them with income that can offset expenses for insurance, etc.
f. As a public company is able to swap art for stock allowing diversification and liquidity for collectors.
g. Open to all types of quality art forms that have a verified commercial value, and not restricted specifically to Chinese or Asian art.

A presentation of GCAF to investors and collectors is being made at the Harvard Club NYC on October 28th.

4. SOLAR*MAGIC This unique system, invented by one of Greater China’s Advisors, has three advantages over conventional solar systems: a) A revolutionary new design in photovoltaic cell processing which is significantly more efficient than other competing systems. b) A proprietary auto-tracking system that physically rotates and follows the sun from morning until evening and makes further adjustments for daily and seasonal changes, also increasing efficiency dramatically. c) immediate conversion of solar energy into usable A/C electricity that can flow directly into a home or building, thus avoiding utility company charges. The net result is a system that provides 65% more cell efficiency and 5 times more electrical capacity than competing systems.
Solar*Magic has the additional feature of being able to utilize the Internet for generating sales, advisory income and add-on opportunities. For example there is a small charge (currently $50) to advise web-users how to quickly compute which configuration is best for their application without having to do hours of complicated research on their own. Then, if they like the proposed solution and price, it can be bought and shipped on-line. These individual sales lead to additional opportunities for Solar*Magic for add-on sales and consulting as well as for equity participation in new projects.
GCCL is in current negotiations for a public offering for Solar*Magic on the London Plus market which is scheduled to be completed by mid-January 2009.

5. China Automobile Recreation Club (“CARC”) This organization (or “Club”) gives members, for $100 per year, the right to access a growing number of retreats located within easy driving distance of the 30 plus cities in China with a population of one million or more. Each site is located in a beautiful natural setting such as on a lake, by the mountains, on a river, or at the shore. Most Chinese have never had the opportunity to go to such naturally-beautiful areas and the Club sites are ideal for an affordable weekend or family vacation.
The villages where these sites are located are eager to supply the land on a low-cost participating lease basis since they will provide local employment. This is a very high priority for provincial and national government departments and local banks which are very supportive of this initiative.
Each location has camping and family-type housing, sports activities, and nature walks, etc. The sites themselves can earn good profits from usage fees. However, the annual membership fee is the real cash cow. With more than 250 million Chinese now part of a growing middle-class, it doesn’t take a large percentage of these, when multiplied by the $100 per year membership fee, to add up to substantial annual earnings. Travel (AAA, etc.) and other membership organizations are being approached as marketing partners.
GCCL has a 50% interest in this project and the business and financing plan is now being completed in China under the direction of one of GCCL’s Advisors.
The benefits of doing offerings like these in conjunction with Greater China (GCCL) are the following:
1. Greater China owns a portion of each of its underlying companies (usually10%-50% or more). At the time of a public offering GCCL distributes part of its holdings to its shareholders (1,000 right now, expected to quickly grow to 5,000-10,000 or more with advanced publicity and renewed public trading of GCCL from its Bermuda domicile). This means that at the time of a public offering of the GCCL entity, the new public company starts out with a large dedicated group of supportive shareholders, many of whom will want to increase their stake by participating in the IPO or adding to it later. In addition, GCCL has an ongoing vested interest in helping to support and grow the company since this represents a (liquid) asset of the GCCL that is reflected in its own market valuation.
2. Greater China shareholders are delighted with this process since not only do they benefit from the rising value of GCCL as the value of its holdings in the underlying companies increases but they also benefit from receiving a diversified portfolio of exciting growth companies through the shares they receive as distributions from GCCL and can add to in the IPO or after-market.

GREATER CHINA CORPORATION

Project List
December 2008

Greater China Corporation (“GCC”) receives a constant flow of ideas and opportunities. In many cases these involve its Directors and Advisors. These Projects are evaluated as to their relevance to GCC”s business purpose (to preserve and enhance the value of every GCC share) as well as what resources will be required to realize value for GCC.

Since we live in a very unpredictable world, many factors that influence these Projects are outside of GCC’s control. Examples are government policies, exchange rates, changes in SEC regulations, and financial markets. While we are dealing with these uncertainties we will continue to keep overhead low, adapt quickly to changing circumstances, and pursue opportunities to generate positive cash flow through advisory agreements and transaction processing in order to keep dilution to a minimum.

The following is a brief description of some of the Projects GCC is developing. In many cases we have a 50% vested interest and in others we are still exploring the optimal structure for all parties. In all cases we look for a way to build substance quickly and to realize the value through consolidation with GCC or by selling or taking public the underlying company. The most effective way of achieving the latter is by distributing some of GCC’s shares to its own shareholders, thereby creating a separate public entity. In such cases GCC shareholders benefit directly from the new shares they receive and indirectly from GCC’s ongoing holding in the new company.

Advisory Relationships -- GCC has been negotiating with a number of major Chinese private and government entities for an advisory role. The list includes China’s largest airline, its largest pharmaceutical company, a major fruit exporting company, and two major city governments. With the change in the world financial order, many Chinese companies are looking to make investments, do acquisitions, and have access the U.S. market for their products. Chinese government entities are seeking ways to move from a manufacturing to a service based economy. GCC is ideally positioned to assist in all these areas.

China Art Fund -- GCC has a 50-50 joint venture agreement for the creation of a major art fund that caters to the growing interest in Chinese art in the west and to Chinese collectors who want to broaden their collection to include western art. GCC is acting as an intermediary in the sale of one major collection, and is also developing a financing plan for the Fund to take advantage of the values available as more collectors seek to gain liquidity.

China Outdoor Recreation Club.-- GCC has a 50% vested interest in this company which is designed to provide an outdoor experience for China’s growing middle class. These facilities, all within easy driving distance from major cities, provide families (and companies) with access to park-like settings by a lake, on a river, near the mountains, by the shore, etc. The facilities are basic and financially self-supporting, and the annual Club membership of $60-$100, when multiplied by the potential market of several million members, provides substantial cash flow.

Direct Sales - -GCC has been working with one of its Advisors to take advantage of the growing need in China and other countries for a way to employ mostly women to become direct sales entrepreneurs. Products are mostly in the skin-care, health and beauty lines, which are in growing demand in emerging countries. This company is in the process of raising its initial seed capital and has already attracted several subscribers.

Dragon Beach, Vietnam --GCC, with its major Vietnamese and U.S. partners, has been negotiating with the provincial and central government in Vietnam to establish a major resort and gaming development near Da Nang, Vietnam. The central government, after a number of indications that they were going to issue casino licenses to Dragon Beach, has still not finalized its gaming policies. However the Province of Quang Nam has decided to go ahead with the project based upon its touristic value, and a final agreement is expected shortly. GCC has a 5% vested interest in what is being termed an $8 billion project.

Mongolia Development - GCC, with local Mongolian partners and U.S. based Envirodesign, initiated a major real estate development project near the capital city of Ulaanbaatur. An important part of this was the use of the proprietary COMPONOFORM™ structural building system as well as a unique solar energy system, SolarMagic™. Both were invented by a GCC Advisor and entrepreneur. At the present time, with world real estate markets in a depressed state, GCC is pursuing the development of the SolarMagic™ system as a way to build value for GCC shareholders.

TongRenTang Wellness Centers - GCC has a 50% interest in this venture, which is designed to provide Traditional Chinese Medicine (“TCM”) products and services in a spa-like setting to international markets. Services include acupuncture, massage, and other oriental treatments. GCC has decided to focus on the high end of the prestige hospitality market and is in current negotiations with a major five-star hotel operator to establish the first pilot TRT spa.

Turtlesnap Ventures - GCC has a 50% vested interest in this Venture Capital Incubator which is designed to encourage innovation and job creation particularly in changing economies such as China. Because of the high profile and great potential value of this venture, a number of prominent investors have expressed interest in being involved

Huge resort project gets going

VietNamNet Bridge – A resort project worth a staggering US$8 billion in Quang Nam Province will still get moving ahead after comments from relevant ministries, despite earlier concerns about the viability of this mammoth project.


Provincial authorities have heard positive opinions about the Dragon Beach resort project from six ministries, and have asked the investors to make amendments as required, said Dinh Van Thu, vice chairman of the province.

“The ministries have given good comments on the project,” Thu told the Daily on Tuesday, explaining that the ministries have asked the investors to clarify some key factors such as investment capacity and environmental impacts.

Two American investors from California – Tano Captial, LLC and Global C&D, Inc. – have joined forces to set up the Dragon Beach Company to develop the resort complex of the same name.

The province, upon these comments, has requested the U.S investors make changes to the project’s development plan, he said.

Thu said that the provincial Department of Planning and Investment had met with the investors to talk about the new requests, and the investors were in the process to do so to complete procedures for the project.

Each of the two founding companies has a chartered capital of US$50 million and has submitted papers to verify their financial capacity. However, the ministries have also requested investors to prove the investment capacity to make sure that they can build the big-scale project.

The tourism-entertainment complex, to be located on 400 hectares in Dien Duong Commune in Dien Ban District, will feature many luxury facilities including hotels, resorts, international conference centers, entertainment facilities as well as slot machines for foreigners.

“We (the provincial government) will give an investment certificate if the ministries’ demands are met,” he said. In September, Quang Nam Province passed the project dossiers to relevant ministries for consultation before giving an investment certificate to the company.

In the original plan, the investors wanted to develop casino services there. However, the Prime Minister rejected this request by the investors because casino is a highly-conditional service that requires strict criteria.

GREATER CHINA CORPORATION


A Better Way to Achieve a Public Listing
December 2008

Greater China Corporation (“GCC”) is an international corporate development company based at Rockefeller Center in New York City.

GCC is a publicly-owned company with approximately 1,200 shareholders and approximately 25 million shares outstanding. The company has no warrants, options or other dilutive instruments outstanding, and no corporate debt. The last trading of the stock was on February 12, 2008, when it closed at $.35. GCC then requested a suspension of trading pending re-filing in early 2009 upon completion of final audits for the years 2006-2008.

GCC has about 50 important shareholders who each own over 1% of the company, but none who own more than 5%. GCC also has a very powerful team of Directors and Advisors who are actively involved with and available to the company for its development activities.

GCC’s primary activity is selecting and supporting corporate development opportunities (“Projects”) with experienced entrepreneurs. The company is actively seeking appropriate private companies who would like to draw upon the corporate development capabilities of GCC and its large and loyal shareholder base as a means of achieving their own public listing.

For qualified candidates, GCC will acquire an equity position in the company, and then work with company management to position the entity for its own independent public listing. This is done by distributing some of GCC’s ownership to its own shareholder base, in many cases in conjunction with an additional financing. Following this spin-off, GCC maintains a portion of its ownership as an incentive to fully support the success and growth of the newly public entity. For a description of some of GCC’s current Projects and a list of its Directors and Advisors, please see www.greaterchinacorp.com.

For an appropriate operating concern seeking a high quality, fast, and cost-effective public listing , a partnership with GCC may provide a far superior and more sustainable alternative to an IPO or reverse merger with a public shell.

Americans view U.S.-China relations as key to any U.S. administration


www.chinaview.cn 2009-01-21 14:34:47

Special Report: Barack Obama: The 44th U.S. President

WASHINGTON, Jan. 20 (Xinhua) -- Wendy Johnson, an African-American lady who attended 44th U.S. President Barack Obama's inauguration ceremony here Tuesday, said U.S.-China relations are so important for both countries that all "smart" leaders will value the ties.

Johnson, whose teenage son and daughter are learning Mandarin Chinese, said the new U.S. president should give an even stronger boost to U.S.-China ties.

"Keeping a great relationship with each other is a good thing for us," she said. "Obama is such a smart president, he knows pretty well how to continue the relations with China."

More than 1 million Americans from across the country and tourists from around the world showed up at the grand ceremony in the capital to watch Obama become the first African-American president in U.S. history.

"Can you find any other bilateral tie more important than U.S.-China relations?" asked Johnson, who encouraged her son and daughter to start studying Mandarin Chinese when they were little as she firmly believed that the new century "will be nothing without the participation of China."

Jane Martin, who traveled with her family all the way from Missouri to be part of a "historic event that the family must witness," said no matter who becomes U.S. president, he cannot afford to ignore U.S.-China relations.

"We have a new era and have to build partnerships around the vision that China and the United States could work together to solve many economic problems," Washington resident Glen Moren told Xinhua shortly after Obama's inauguration speech.

Meanwhile, the president of the New York-based Greater China Corporation, John Allen, said Obama will "definitely" give top priority to bilateral relations once he assumes office.

"Take our business relations for example. No one dares to risk hurting the ties," he said, adding that any damage to relations will hurt the two economies.

"Developing diplomatic relations must serve the aim of making the lives of the two peoples even better, so in any case, all clever leaders should value the relations."

China and the United States forged diplomatic ties 30 years ago. The relations, in former U.S. secretary of state Dr. Henry Kissinger's words, are becoming better with each passing year, although problems emerge sometimes.

"Our two countries are binding together so tightly just because we share many common interests," said Gon Kevin, while hurrying to join the inauguration parade following the ceremony.

Kevin said his life was "at least 80 percent related to China" as the shoes, hat, coat and gloves he was wearing were all made in China.

"I love China just because the Chinese are hard working people who are making this world more colorful," he said.

Kevin, who traveled from Florida to watch the "historic" event, said it was unnecessary to give special care to bilateral relations "as they are already mature" and the president has more important domestic matters on his agenda.

"He should fix the U.S. economy first, which is his top priority," Kevin said. If the country's economic problems are solved properly, relations with China would become even stronger because "bilateral economic interests are closely interwoven with each other," he said.

GREATER CHINA CORPORATION

June 4, 2009

Dear Fellow Shareholders:

In recent weeks many GCC shareholders have requested a status report on the Company. The following is a rundown on some of the important matters currently before us:

1. GCC-NYSE company combination. We continue to focus on the business combination with a New York Stock Exchange listed closed-end fund. Having a NYSE listed platform can enable us to fully utilize the resources and relationships we have, but have not yet been able to exploit. Our GCC Advisor who is also a Trustee of the Fund is acting as an intermediary and facilitator.

2. Dragon Beach, Vietnam. Our GCC Advisor for this project has finally been able to bring the parties to the table. This involves: a. Securing the rights to develop the enormously valuable Dragon Beach site, and b. Receiving the contemplated 9 casino operating licenses for the site. Meetings are scheduled this month with the principals of Dragon Beach to finalize the initial agreement and to coordinate with the President, Prime Minister and other top Vietnamese officials to schedule signing events during which we feel the casino licenses may be issued.

3. Other Projects. We continue to develop numerous opportunities along with our Directors and Advisors and their own networks of high-level relationships. Our constraint in realizing value from these opportunities has been our lack of financial resources, compounded by the current economic implosion. This has, however, created even more opportunities for us with less competition particularly as we achieve the NYSE status. We will report on specific opportunities only as they become a reality since we do not wish to get excited about projects if they can’t be turned into value for our shareholders.

4. The completion of our audits, new share issuance and the re-listing of GCC shares continue to be hampered by a shortage of capital. We have cut our internal expenses to the bone but still have to pay third party professionals relatively small amounts to get this work done. In this regard we have been negotiating with a number of investors to cover these expenses so we can move ahead rapidly.

We are fortunate that we have a very lean organization, no debt, and a growing network of important relationships and opportunities. Our task is to convert these into value for our shareholders, which is exciting, but which takes time and money. We look forward to reporting on our progress as it takes place and thank you for your continued patience and support.


Sincerely,
John W. Allen JWA*greaterchinacorp.com

GREATER CHINA CORPORATION

Regional Center Network
EB-5 Visa Investment Program
August 2010

Institutional Investor - July 13, 2010
"There has been a stunning change of fortunes in the financial industry. Chinese banks and insurers have supplanted those in the U.S. as the world's largest in market capitalization. Hong Kong has surpassed New York and London as the center of IPO activity. Increasingly, Asian firms are innovators in their own right, not merely adopters of Western practices and products."

Greater China Corporation is developing a network of Regional Centers throughout the United States to accommodate the increasing flow of Chinese investment into the United States.

These Regional Centers will provide local knowledge and management to conduct the following types of business:

EB-5 Visa Investments
Other direct real estate investments
Revolving bridge fund to make immediate investments
Acquisitions and Joint-Ventures with U.S. companies
Access to technology research and development
Location of U.S. manufacturing for Chinese companies

Greater China Corporation will own 50% or more of planned Regional Centers to be located in the following areas:

Location Management
New York John W. Allen, John Watts III, Laurence Levine, Herbert Pliessnig, Elizabeth Wang, Yihua Yang
Boston Geoffrey Chalmers
New England E. Packer Wilbur
Atlanta John Pigott
Florida Bradley Weiss, Robert McGrath, Jr.
Chicago Eric Fogel
Arizona Jeremy Schoenfelder, Elizabeth Mann
Los Angeles Karen Jagoda, Joseph Kalkstein
Greater Washington, DC John Murdock/Michael Seay

Greater China has its own network of relationships with major Chinese banks and investment groups. It is also in discussions with establishing a partnership with a major China-based investment banking group which has a similar network of offices throughout China. It is believed that this combined organization will be the first of its kind to efficiently process business between the two countries. This global network has the potential of becoming a very profitable and substantial bridge for conducting business between China and the United States.

DRAGON BEACH RESORTS

Description and Major Features

Dragon Beach Resort is located in central Vietnam near Da Nang. It consists of 1,100 acres with approximately one mile of beach-front property on the inside of the horseshoe-shaped Coco River. Another 2,000 acres is held on the other side of the river.

The site has been designated to receive 9 casino licenses upon enactment of currently proposed legislation. This will enable Dragon Beach to develop a critical mass of casinos and resort facilities similar to Macau and Las Vegas and to make it one of Asia's premier tourist destinations.

Major Features

Location:
Dragon Beach is located right in the center of the entire Asian market within relatively short flying distances from China, Japan, Thailand, Korea, India, Hong Kong, Singapore, Indonesia and other of the world's most populous countries. The airport at Da Nang has the longest runway in Asia as is currently being expanded. Forbes Magazine has called Dragon Beach one of the 10 most beautiful beaches in the world. It is also close to three world heritage sites in Vietnam and to Angor Wat in Cambodia. Dragon Beach has all the ingredients to be one of Asia's "must-visit" destinations.

Demographics:
The economies of countries within Dragon Beach's market territory are growing at 3-4 times the rate of western economies. This has created a rapid increase in disposable income and leisure time with pent-up demand to experience a resort such as Dragon Beach. Gaming revenues in Asia are expected to reach $20 billion in 2010 and grow to $30 billion over the next decade. For the month of February 2010 gambling revenues from Macau alone reached $1.68 billion according to Lusa, the Portuguese news agency.

Franchise:
Dragon Beach is expected to be one of only two locations to receive multiple casino licenses in Vietnam. The other one, in the south, is located on an island which will require substantial additional costs and time for infrastructure development. Dragon Beach has the first-to-market advantage.

Benefits to Vietnam:
Vietnam has studied the reasons why Singapore has sanctioned casinos with the conclusion that if gambling is carefully controlled (the reason for only two sites) and done with the right partners, it can create thousands of new jobs and enhance Vietnam as a prime tourist destination.

Intrinsic Value of Property:
The approximate land cost for the two new casinos in Singapore were $350 million for the 51 acre plot for Marina Bay Sands and $700 million for the 1,235 acre Resorts World Sentosa. The Dragon Beach property which consists of 1,100 acres with beach-frontage plus 2,000 acres across the Coco Riiver has an initial value of $100 million in accordance with the Agreement with Quang Nam Province.

Development Value of Property:
The two Integrated Resorts being developed in Singapore have an estimated cost of $3.5 billion for Marina Bay Sands and $3.6 billion for Resorts World Sentosa. Deutsche Bank analysts have predicted that the Sentosa property alone should generate as much as $1.2 billion in gaming revenues in its first year of operation. Dragon Beach will have the right to develop 9 casino properties including 9 associated hotels of 2,000 rooms each.

Liquidity Value of Property:
Wynn Macau, with 16% of the Macau market, raised $1.63 billion for its Macau properties in October 2009 giving the company a $6.9 billion market cap at the time. Sands China raised $2.5 billion in November 2009 giving their Macau operations a market cap of $11.4 billion. MGM Grand is expected to have its own IPO during 2010. Dragon Beach, which can represent as many as 9 casino operators should be an attractive IPO candidate either individually or in combination with other Asian casino locations and can appeal to the Vietnamese as well as Chinese, Hong Kong and international investment communities.

Opportunity
The partners of Dragon Beach Resorts are open to discussions with leading international investors and casino operators who can meet the world-class standards required for the property.
