Taipei, Feb. 18 (CNA) Mitsui Fudosan, a major real estate developer in Japan, plans to build several malls in Taiwan, following the recent successful launch of its first shopping complex here, the head of the company’s Taipei branch said Thursday.
Eying Taiwan’s strong consumer purchasing power, Mitsui Fudosan will build at least three malls in Taipei and another three or four elsewhere in the country, said Hiroyuki Shinozuka, managing director of the company’s Taipei operations. The announcement of the plan followed the successful opening on Jan. 26 of the Mitsui Outlet Park in Linkou, New Taipei.
It is the largest outlet mall in northern Taiwan, comprising about 220 outlets for Japanese and Taiwanese brands, restaurants, food courts, a cinema complex, and an upscale supermarket. [FULL STORY]
