Repost :: A karma from squeezing out Robert Kuok by UMNO Pirate

SUGAR OR FROZEN DURIAN DEAL?

“For the self-interests of their cronies, they arm-twisted to take over Kuok’s Sugar Empire, cronies get rich by 1 billion or so, but it causing huge losses of more than 20 billion each year to the country!”

Recently, BN government has offended Robert Kuok, Malaysian economy suffered a great blow consequently!

After the official visit of Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao to Malaysia, Najib government now is truly understood Robert Kuok’s personal influence on China!

In order to benefit their cronies, they arm-twisted to swallow Robert Kuok’s sugar empire. The cronies get richer by 1 billion or so, but it causing losses of more than 20 billion to the country!

Those who have accessed to insider news can only curse to core and pull out his/her hairs!

Malaysia sugar king was forced to leave Malaysia, but became the world’s sugar king! He bought the world’s largest sugar mills in Australia, invested USD 10 billion in the sugar farm in Indonesia with the goal of developing it to the world’s largest sugar refining producer, living up to the name of the world’s sugar king.

On the other hand, Malaysia government enriched its cronies at the expense of national interests. For those who have insider news, Kuok offered tremendous help to the Malaysian government in the past few decades, he has done everything possible; but what the government did was like what you will get when you turn over a pig stomach: faeces.

In other words, Najib Government is UNGRATEFUL!

In the “Confidential” news, it is about the Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao’s visit to Malaysia recently, it hit a snag with Najib.

Prior to Premier Wen Jiabao’s visit to Malaysia, Najib and his cabinet on more than one occasion, hinted that he hoped China will double the amount of palm oil import from Malaysia.

We all know that China is the largest consumer of palm oil from Malaysia. Rapid economic growth in the recent years, China became the largest palm oil market for Malaysia, but Malaysia has also facing a strong competition from Indonesia, trying to sell its palm oil at lower prices to China and India, which will diluting Malaysian market share.

This threat is a great concern for Najib.

Najib hoped to sign a new palm oil trading contracts with Premier Wen Jiabao in order to more than double the average 10 million tonnes monthly export to China. But Wen Jiabao came to a Malaysia, Najib was told that this request is unlikely to be fulfilled. It was an utter disappointment.

Najib knows the Chinese market demand, import one million tonnes of palm oil per month is still not a constraint for China.

So, what is the problem? The problem is Sugar King, Kuok does not agree!

Why the Sugar Kuok is able to influence China’s decision to buy Malaysian palm oil?

The China cooking oil market is monopolized by who? The China cooking oil market leader is “Arowana” brand cooking oil, accounting for nearly 40% of its market share! The Arowana cooking oil boss, is Robert Kuok!

Think about it, if Premier Wen Jiabao on behalf of the Chinese government buys the Malaysian palm oil. Who is going to refine it into cooking oil? Of course, it is the private enterprises! With its 40% market share, if Arowana cooking oil company refuses to buy more, how the Chinese government is going to absorb the extra import volume?

Najib was insensible from the start, and did not know Kuok had such a big influence in China. He had helped cronies, forced Robert Kuok to give up the Malaysian sugar king throne, and didn’t expect to have such quick retribution.

Kuok was forced to pack and leave Malaysia, his heart is of course very unhappy. People of Malaysia must know that during the early days of independence, we did not have aviation talent pool, Alliance government requested Kuok’s father to help set up Malayan Airways.

In 1970 Malaysian maritime shipping industry is also in vacuum, Malaysian government sent representatives to Hong Kong to personally invite Kuok for assistance. For the national development sake, Kuok put aside his Group business, came back to Malaysia to assist Government in establishing a national maritime shipping industry, this later renamed to MALAYSIA INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING CORPORATION, MISC in short.

Robert Kuok gave his hand when Malaysia repeatedly faced the economic difficulties in Mahathir era. Even in MCA Tan Koon Swan’s case, it was Robert Kuok who paid the bail! Malaysia’s successive governments, from the National Front to BN, owed Robert Kuok a lot. But Malaysian Government was ungrateful, using the high-handed trick and no sugar price rise excuse to forcefully take over Kuok’s sugar empire in Malaysia.

This is not ungrateful?

Deng Xiaoping made a comeback in the 70s, announced China’s reform and needed most generous help of overseas Chinese entrepreneurs; Robert was first to take actions to help Deng. Among the other entrepreneurs of Chinese economic miracle are Henry Fok and Li Ka-shing Hong Kong. Malaysian entrepreneur Robert Kuok is the first to response to Deng Xiaoping’s appeal and built the China’s first five-star hotel, Shangri-La in Beijing.

With over 30 years of close-knit relationship with the Chinese government and its top leadership, Kuok has great influence on them. Najib failed to recognize that. This is why the quote at the top of this post : “For the interests of their cronies, they arm twisted to take over Kuok’s Sugar Empire, cronies get rich by 1 billion or so, but it causing huge losses of more than 20 billion each year to the country!”

Kuok’s sugar empire was eaten up by the fat vampire’s family abruptly. Imagine, a world renowned international trade business personality, what humiliation he received in return for his single-minded help all this while for his own country & government? And Najib would never think that the consequences of offending the Sugar King will be so serious.

Right after Sugar King left Malaysia, he immediately announced the acquisition of Australia’s biggest sugar mill. This is the world leading supplier of raw material for sugar manufacturing. Of course, this includes supplying to the family of the fat vampire woman’s sugar factory in Perlis.

In early this year, Kuok announced plans to invest USD 10 billion in Indonesia for the development of the world’s largest sugar cane plantation, as well as building a state-of-the-art sugar refinery mill.

In the midst of world economy was facing a downturn and Malaysian government traveled around the world to solicit investment. How much was Malaysia’s foreign investment? Kuok’s single investment in Indonesia alone is already USD 10 billion dollars!

Don’t you want to screw the first couple?

At the moment, China’s palm oil contracts sealed with Malaysia is remaining unchanged under the agreeable terms. There won’t be any increase in volume. Indonesia has more palm oil output than Malaysia. It is cheaper too. Now that Kuok had invested so much money in Indonesia, the Government of Indonesia would have treated him as their God of Wealth. Certainly, open to negotiate anything with him. Moreover, Indonesia has been eyeing to take over the China palm oil contract from Malaysia.

The CONSOLATION price China offers to Malaysia for not increasing the purchase of palm oil was importing frozen durian.

Do the Chinese people have the habit of eating durian? How much time and efforts are needed to market frozen durian from Malaysia? Thai durian may not selling well in China, let alone Malaysia frozen durian?

Business is business, who would supply millions of dollars’ worth of frozen durian into an untapped new market with no durian consumption culture? Should the Chinese people become non-receptive of it, how do we deal with return goods? A total failure of investment might happen. Is this how to do business?

In earlier this year, when the news hit the papers that Kuok made an announcement to invest USD 10 billion in Indonesia, many criticized Kuok for being unpatriotic, preferring to inject so much money into Indonesia instead of Malaysian.

What A CRAP!

You arm-twisted him to take over his empire, forcing the man to leave Malaysia in broken heart & humiliation; now that the man ignores the Malaysian market, and you criticize him?

He channeled his huge investment to Australia & Indonesia instead of Malaysia, who is to be blamed?

Coincidentally, Kuok is not just the renowned China hotelier, king of cooking oil, the world’s sugar King; he is also the franchisee of the Coca-cola soft drink brand in the Chinese market. Kuok is involved in a diversity of businesses in China. He created many job opportunities for China. The Chinese central government and leaders have great respect for him as an entrepreneur. When the man speaks, the weight it carries can be far-reaching.

So far, Kuok is the only Malaysian tycoon who never accepted any of the royal titles conferred for those outstanding Malaysians.

Many people address him as “Tan Sri Robert Kuok,” in actual fact, he does not have it, he doesn’t need them too. To put the record straight, he is neither Tan Sri nor Dato.

大马糖王:那鸡吃了一粒糖,却输掉一间厂,吃了一间厂,却輸掉全世界。

最近那鸡政府得罪了郭鹤年,给大马经济带来的打击更加大到吓人!尤其中国温家宝总理来马官访以后,那鸡政府才真正体会到郭鹤年对中国的影响力有多大!

他们为了朋党的利益,硬硬吞掉了郭鹤年的玻璃市糖厂,表面上让朋党发财10几亿,但是却造成了全民损失超过200亿!知道内情的人,又忍不住要开骂PKHKC了!

大马糖王离开大马,变成世界糖王!他在澳洲买下世界最大的糖厂,有出资100亿美金,在耶加达发展世界最大的甘蔗种植计划和发展炼糖工业;世界糖王之名,郭老当仁不让。

反观大马,为了朋党的利益,却牺牲了全民的利益。。。。对于⋯⋯知情者而言,过去几十年来,郭老对大马政府的援手帮忙,真的是仁至义尽;没有想到政府反转猪肚就是屎,只有四个字可以形容那鸡政府:忘恩负义!

有一个《秘闻》,是关于最近中国总理温家宝访马,那鸡碰钉子的。

早在温家宝总理访马之前,那鸡和他的内阁就不止一次放话,说希望中国可以通过这次访马的时候,将购买大马棕油的数额提高一倍。

大家都知道中国是大马棕油最大消费国。经济急速崛起的中国是在近年来成为大马最大的棕油市场,不过我国目前也面对印尼的强力竞争,试图以更低价格出售棕油给中国和印度,分薄大马的市场。这正是那鸡最担心的。

那鸡希望温家宝总理能够签署一份新的棕油买卖合约,将平均每个月出口到中国的10多万公吨的数量提高一倍。可是温家宝一来到大马,就告诉那鸡,那是不可能的事。那鸡犹如被当头浇了一盘冷水。

那鸡知道中国市场需求量太大了,就算每月进口100万公吨的棕油,也不是问题。那么,问题在哪里?

问题就在:糖王郭鹤年不答应!

为什么糖王郭鹤年能够影响中国购买大马棕油的决定?

中国全国的食油市场是由谁垄断的呢?中国的食油市场老大,是《金龙鱼油》食油;占了全国食油市场将近40%!而金龙鱼油食油的大老板,正是郭鹤年!

想想,温家宝代表中国政府购买大马棕油,回国之后这些棕油交给谁去加工提炼成食油?当然就是民间企业啦!金龙鱼油食油公司不答应吃下这些货的活,你叫中国政府怎样消耗掉?

那鸡从一开始就傻呼呼的,根本不知道郭鹤年在中国竟然有这么大的影响力。他当初帮着朋党逼郭鹤年让出大马糖王宝座的时候,绝对没有想到这么快就得到报应!

郭鹤年被逼离开大马,心里当然非常不爽,要知道大马建国初期连航空业人才也没有,是联盟政府恳求郭鹤年的父亲帮忙设立马来亚航空公司的。

70年代大马海上航运业也真空,是大马政府亲自派代表去香港邀请郭鹤年帮忙,郭鹤年为了国家发展,将自己的集团业务暂时放下,回来大马协助政府设立国家海上航运业,这才有了后来的MALAYSIA INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING COPERATION,简称MISC。

连老马也多次遇到经济商业难题的时候找过郭鹤年帮忙,甚至当年马华的陈群川遇到新泛电官司,无法缴交保释金,都是郭鹤年两肋插刀帮忙搞定的!这表示,大马历任政府,从联盟到国阵,都欠了郭鹤年不少人情。但是大马政府竟然打完斋不要和尚,过桥抽板,硬硬以〈不批准白糖起价〉,〈必须国有化〉等等借口把郭鹤年在大马的基业给吃掉!大家说,这是不是忘恩负义?

70年代邓小平东山再起,宣布中国走改革开放路线的时候,最需要海外华裔企业家鼎力相助;最早坐言起行走进中国帮邓伯伯开拓中国市场创造经济奇迹的大企业家,香港是霍英东和李嘉诚,大马企业家就是郭鹤年第一个响应邓小平,在北京建造中国第一家五星级大酒店:香格里拉大酒店!

凭着过去30多年和中国政府领导层建立的深厚关系,郭鹤年的影响力之大,绝对是那鸡无法想象的。这就是为什么在这个帖子最前面说:他们为了朋党的利益,硬硬吞掉了郭鹤年的玻璃市糖厂,表面上让朋党发财10几亿,但是却造成了全民损失超过200亿!

郭老的糖厂被僵尸肥婆的家族硬生生吃掉,想他老人家叱咤国际商场,几曾受过这么大的屈辱?更何况还是自己一心一意帮助了几十年的祖国政府?而那鸡根本没有想到,他得罪了糖王的后果竟是如此严重。

【吃了一間廠,輸掉全世界。】–名句精华。

糖王这边才离开大马,那边立刻宣布收购澳洲最大的白糖制造厂,制造白糖的某种原料,就是由这家企业供应给全世界糖厂的,当然,包括被僵尸肥婆家族吃掉的玻璃市糖厂。

接着在今年初,郭老再宣布投资100亿美金,在印尼开发世界最大甘蔗种植区,还有先进的炼糖厂。世界经济不景,大马政府周游列国招商,外资来马的总投资额一年才多少亿?郭鹤年单独一人给印尼的单一项目投资就高达100亿美金!各位,看到这里,你会不会很想对那鸡夫妇大骂一句:PKHKC!?(不明PKHKC,哈哈)

现在郭老态度摆到明,中国和大马政府以前签下来的购买棕油合约照跑,但是,想增加购买数量?免谈!印尼的棕油比马来西亚更多,价格更便宜,加上现在他在印尼投资这么多钱,印尼政府当然把他当财神,什么都好谈。更何况印尼一直虎视眈眈,希望能够从大马手中抢走中国的买卖棕油合约。

至于中国购买冷冻榴莲,根本就是在无法得到更多棕油购买的承诺之下,中国给大马的CONSOLATION,安慰奖而已啦!哈哈哈!中国人有吃榴莲的习惯吗?你要花多少时间和心思去推销大马冷冻榴莲?泰国榴莲在中国都未必卖得好,更何况是冷冻榴莲?

在商言商,谁敢一下子将价值数百万美金的冷冻榴莲推进一个完全陌生的市场吗?万一中国人的接受度不足,时间久了面对退货问题,怎么办?血本无归啊!做生意是这样的吗?别傻了!

今年初,当郭老宣布在印尼投资100亿美金的消息见报之后,我看到一些人批评郭老不爱国,宁愿将这么多资金拿去印尼,都不照顾大马人;我就一直为郭老叫屈!你们忘恩负义把人家的基业吞掉,让郭老含恨离开大马;现在看到郭老不鸟大马市场了,你们有资格批评他吗?

追根究底,人家宁愿在澳洲和印尼大量投资,都不看你一言,应该怪谁?

顺便跟大家报告一下:郭鹤年不但是中国的酒店大王,食油大王,世界糖王,他还是coca cola汽水品牌在中国市场的专利权拥有者。他在中国涉及的业务极多而且多元化。为中国制造许多就业机会的商机,是中国中央政府领导人非常敬重的一位企业家。他讲一句话,份量绝对不会比一些外国领导人低。

他也是直到目前为止,唯一一位从来不接受大马皇室授勋的大马大企业家。很多人写他的时候,理所当然地称他《丹斯里郭鹤年》,事实上他并没有这些勋衔,也不稀罕。他不是丹斯里,也不是拿督。

How UMNO take over rice milling and distribution businesses of the Chinese held companies

Original title: 龙珠香米 摘自 正义之声

A case study on Dragon and Pearl Fragrant Rice

Briefly, this article sets out to describe how BN Govt., using the legislation and economic powers, to erode and eventually take over the rice milling and distribution businesses of the Chinese held companies.

In the eighties, the rice market was mainly controlled by the Chinese carrying such brand names, e.g. Dragon and Pearl,Jasmine, etc. Robert Kuok was then one of the biggest dealers of rice. Mahathir, in pursuit of the NEP policy, instituted the requirement of obtaining APs for the import of the most commodities. The import of Chinese oranges during the CNY festive period was included in this exercise.

Shortly after, the rice market was also targeted by the setting up of Bernas National Bhd. to oversee this policy. Import permits held by the Chinese were rescinded with Bernas being replaced as the sole importer instead. The price of rice was then dictated by Bernas henceforth. All production of padi must only be delivered and sold to Bernas.

Bernas was originally a Government entity. Later, it was divested to Rosmah’s family connections. Having taken over this monopoly, Bernas began to wrest control of wholesale destribution market of this important commodity. Robert Kuok saw through the evil intents of the Government policies and sold off to venture eleswhere. Not all other rice dealers had his type of potentials and thus had to soldier on despite the mounting harassments and exploitations by Bernas.

In the 90s, Bernas started to absorb the other Chinese rice merchants who had managed to sustain such encroachments thus far. Supplies can be obtained only through Bernas. After a lapse of another decade, most of the Chinese rice dealers had had to sell off. The remaining one of note is Hock Ju Co.Ltd. the owner of which, Mr. Khoo, stood steadfastly his ground.

The reasons why Bernas could so easily take over the Chinese companies are twofold, viz. (1) the lifeline of supply is solely in their hands and (2) the lack of trading capital of the Chinese merchants. Bernas would extend credit line to the rice merchants and allowed the credits to accumulate to the tune of million of ringgits which amount eventually had to be settled in the form of shares exchange to Bernas. The one who refused to surrender to Bernas was Hock Ju Edar. It had prepared itself well for this eventuality and its boss is the leader of the Malaysian Rice Merchant Association.

In 2006, Bernas applied pressure on this company by letting it be known that Bernas was interested in acquiring 51 per cent shares of the company. It assured Hock Ju that it will not face rice supplies shortages for its milling operations resulting from this deal. The other condition was that the company, upon it becoming a part of Bernas, would have to contribute in the million of ringgits to the coffer of BN once every 5 years during national election time. The boss of Hock Ju forthwith rejected the offer because he did not relish the thought of losing his company which he had toiled and built up through decades so easily and undeservedly. The matter concerning the political contributions was particularly meaningless to him since he had been running his business scrupulously with no political affiliation whatever.

Not willing to let the matter rest, Bernas officials purposely curtailed his orders for supply of rice by giving lame reasons for such shortages. During the periods of rice shortages, price fluctuations always favored the Bernas connected companies.

Hock Ju had to deposit with Bernas a banker’s Letter of Guarantee of Ringgit 5 million in lieu of the rice supplies. Suddenly, Bernas informed Hock Ju that the LC had to be redeemed in the form of cash within a fortnight. With the support of the bank and its own resources, Hock Ju managed to overcome this problem temporarily.

However, will Bernas cease to harass Hock Ju further with their sinister intentions ?

The boss of Hock Ju personally feels that he might not be able to hold on much longer against the might of the evil forces and thus become the last vestige of his kind.
