KUALA LUMPUR (Dec 9): The Second Construction Co Ltd of China Construction Third Engineering Bureau, a key enterprise of China State Construction Engineering Corp (CSCEC), is said to have shown interest in Malaysia and Asean's first Halal Gelatin Industrial Park to be developed by Sanichi Technology Bhd.
