Shanghai: Wei Jiafu, president of China's Cosco group has announced that the company plans to continue to investing in ports and terminals, both in China and overseas, reports Reuters. Although he did not release details of the proposed investments Wei said the company would target ports and terminals in Hong Kong, Singapore, Egypt and Belgium.
