Million Sunray Sdn Bhd (“Million Sunray”), a subsidiary of SGX-mainboard listed Regal International Group, undertook the first “Malaysia Durian Festival 2017” (“DuFest 2017”) in Nanning, China in an attempt to heighten its strategic edge as a cross-border investment platform. The 3-day DuFest 2017 designated to promote Malaysian whole frozen durian fruits, Durian-related products and other value-added agricultural products in China, was described as a “fabulous success” for achieving an impressive turnout of about 165,000 people and a total projected trade value of the business matched (by 2020) worth RM2.9 billion.

Event Highlights
Held in front of the popular HangYang City shopping center (南宁航洋国际城), from 3rd to 5th November 2017, DuFest 2017 featured approximately 55 exhibition booths showcasing over 200 durian-based products like coffee, ice-cream and pancakes, together with other Malaysia tropical fruits such as pineapple and jackfruit. With event highlights involving Malaysian durian sampling, Malaysia cultural performances, onsite games and quizzes, DuFest 2017 has successfully heightened the awareness of Malaysia arts and cultural heritage in China.

“DuFest 2017 will help unleash untapped potentials in demands for supplementary trades and developments relating to tropical fruits processing and production, quality control and certifications, not to mention logistics and storage needs,” remarked Mr. Dominic Su.

The Group believes that Million Sunray’s undertaking in DuFest 2017 is part of its strategy in enhancing real estate value-chain via the integration of complementary agricultural business ventures of sustainable growth.
