Singapore-listed Cosco Corporation subsidiary Cosco Shipyard Group increases its investment in the registered capital of 60%-owned Cosco Qidong Offshore, China.
Cosco has increased its investment by RMB300-million to RMB600-million. The other investors in the yard have also doubled their investment at the fast growing offshore complex so the shareholding structure remains the same, reports SinoShip News.
