Landing International eyes theme park in Philippines

Chinese property developer Landing International Development is looking to build a multi-billion dollar theme park in the Philippines, said the company in a statement.

On Monday, Landing International Development chairman and executive director Yang Zhihui, met with President Rodrigo Duterte and his cabinet team where they discussed the company’s proposal to build an international branded theme park integrated resort in the country.

According to Yang, the resort will comprise Asia’s first movie-themed indoor theme park, waterpark, as well as many other leisure and entertainment facilities.

Yang said the project “will enhance the Philippines’ tourism appeal, complement existing tourist attractions and resorts as well as create significant employment opportunities for locals as well as returning Filipinos who are currently working overseas,” adding that the park would be something “all Filipinos will be proud of”.

President Duterte expressed his “keen” interest and support for the company’s proposal, the company said.
