Ownership of Florida Splendid China 4
From the ground breaking ceremony (December 18, 1991) until the theme park's opening in December 1993, the overseas partner worked to get the project finished. As soon as everything was complete, the American partner was bought out.
As mentioned in the Orlando Sentinel article "New order: China controls Central Florida theme park," dated January 15, 1994:
China Travel Services H.K. Ltd., a government-owned travel service organization assumed full ownership Thursday, said Quimou Ma, senior vice president of Florida Splendid China and an official of China Travel.
Was this the plan from the beginning ?
