Wong family injected the family asset on Hong Kong Parkview, to the group by issuing new shares, made Wong family owned more than 80% interest in the group. The group was engaged in the charter hire of vessels until Wong family (through Chyau Fwu Development Ltd.) acquired the majority shares in 1990, from Sze Ka-Shuen (Mr. Sze) to complete a backdoor listing.[3]

The Group had a hotel project in Dingshan, Nanjing, Eastern China (Newmeadow Limited, owned 45% interests of Nanjing Dingshan Garden Hotel Co.Ltd.).
