Taipei Twin Towers Development Project Gets Stuck|雙子星案疑涉中資 立委要求投審會報告


The Taipei Twin Towers development project may be delayed once more. Recently, New Power Party Legislator Hsu Yung-ming and others raised questions about Nan Hai Corporation, which won the project bid. According to reports, it pledged its stock to China's Central Huajin Investment Company. On Mar. 20, the legislature passed a resolution requiring the Investment Commission to present a report to the legislature before reviewing the case.


The Taipei Twin Towers development project is worth approximately NT$ 60 billion. It has been repeatedly criticized by Taipei City Mayor Ko Wen-je, and the review pace has been slow. The original schedule called for the contract to be signed in April. However, on Mar. 20, the legislature passed a resolution requiring the Investment Commission to present a report to the legislature before starting its review. This may delay the entire project.

The Investment Commission should investigate Nan Hai Corporation and whether it pledged its stock to Central Huajin Investment Company as well as the proportion, which shareholders did this, whether it will affect the future of Taipei Twin Towers, and whether the project will be transferred to Central Huajin Investment Company. These are all things we are worried about.

According to Legislator Hsu Yung-ming, the Investment Commission said in December last year that there were no issues with the two companies. On Mar. 4, it said it had already prepared application materials. On Mar. 18, the Ministry of Economic Affairs asked for supplementary materials because there were documents showing Nan Hai Corporation had pledged part of its equity to Central Huajin Investment Company.

Central Huajin Investment Company holds the collateral right, not the stock right. We are consulting with relevant parties to clarify the influence on the stock right composition and what can be exercised.

The project went through six rounds of bidding. At the end of last year, it was confirmed that Nan Hai Corporation, a Hong Kong company, had the best qualifications. The Investment Commission says it will abide by the legislature's resolution and the pace of the review process depends on the responses of several parties. It will ask the investor to supplement explanations. It stressed the review process will not be delayed.



高達六百億的雙子星聯合開發案,多次被台北市長柯文哲批評,審查進度緩慢,原本預定四月要簽約,但20日立法院決議,經濟部投審會需先向立院提出專案報告,再做審查,讓雙子星案恐怕將再延後。

時代力量立委 徐永明表示:「投審會表態這部分,他們要查南海有股東,把他們的股票質押給中國匯金,到底比例多少?那是哪些股東做這樣的事?會不會影響到未來雙子星?這東西會不會轉給中資公司?這是我們比較擔心的。」

徐永明質疑,去年12月投審會曾經表示,南海控股並無中資疑慮,3月4號更說已備齊申請資料,但18號經濟部卻又改口,要求重新補件,因為有資料顯示,南海控股將部份股權抵押給中國中央匯金公司。

投審會副執行祕書 楊淑玲表示:「中央匯金公司,他們持有的是抵押權的權益,而不是股權,對南海控股的股權結構的影響,以及他可以行使的內容部分,這部分我們已經在洽相關機關在釐清。」

雙子星開發案,歷經6次招標,去年底確定由香港商南海控股獲得「最優申請人資格」。投審會強調,配合立法院決議辦理,審查進度仍待部分送審機關回覆意見,後續再請投資人補正說明,強調審查絕無拖延。
