JIANGSU authorities will sign infrastructure deals in Hongkong over the next few days, including power plant projects with Hopewell and CITIC Pacific. Jiangsu Deputy-Governor Wang Rongbing said yesterday that a letter of intent would be signed with Hopewell for the Lui Xi power station project, with a total investment of US$2.6 billion. The Ligang power station joint venture which CITIC (HK) injected into CITIC Pacific in January would also be agreed to, he said. Mr Wang heads a delegation seeking to attract investment in the northern province. ''There are about 1,000 projects available for foreign participation, while 78 projects are each worth more than $10 million and total about $13 billion.'' Among the bigger projects is the Huling highway, connecting Shanghai with Nanjing, estimated to cost $820 million. Mr Wang said most of the infrastructure projects would welcome foreign investment in the form of joint ventures. He noted that Jiangsu had a total output value of 189.6 billion yuan (about HK$257 billion) in 1992, up 27 per cent over the previous year. It showed that Jiangsu had become the fastest growing province in China, he added. Mr Wang said total industrial output in the first quarter jumped 48.6 per cent compared with the previous corresponding period. There were 2,500 joint venture agreements worth $2.5 billion recorded in the period, he said.
