Jiang Chen had temporarily put aside the questions regarding the mysterious video . Regardless if the external circumstances, caused the history of his world to diverge from the wasteland’s, the fact is, it already happened and had nothing to do with him .
Or rather, from his perspective, the history of the wasteland was more peculiar .
He walked out of the room alone and headed downstairs .
It was already noon . Most of the customers at the hotel were enjoying lunch at the Felix restaurant on the 28th floor . Before the three o’clock afternoon tea began, the first-floor hall was empty .
When he came to the grand hall, he immediately saw Mr . Chen, who was sitting at the restaurant .
Chen Wei, a renowned businessman of Xiangjiang, had a focus on the entertainment and real estate market . He was the majority shareholder of Nanfeng Real Estate and Nanfeng Entertainment companies, with a personal net worth of over ten billion .
In a black suit with a kind face, he had a slight dogmatic vibe, similar to that of a ruthless leader . Although he was well into his midlife, his dark hair had no signs of balding .
Just from his appearance, Mr . Chen looked like a decent businessman . But Jiang Chen knew too well that anyone who did business with Robert was nowhere in being decent .
Standing behind him was a bodyguard also in a suit with a pair of shades over his eyes .
When he saw Jiang Chen walking over, Mr . Chen stood up courteously and greeted him with a smile .
"I have long heard Mr . Jiang’s name . Now that I finally have the chance to meet you, Mr . Jiang is indeed a stellar individual . "
"Mr . Chen is flattering me . Regarding the boat, I have to thank you for that," Jiang Chen humbly replied .
"Haha, that is nothing at all . Please sit down…"
After some brief small talk, Jiang Chen sat down with Chen Wei’s warm welcome .
"Why did Mr . Chen want to see me?" Jiang Chen smiled at Mr . Chen as he comfortably sat on the chair .
"Haha, Mr . Jiang is certainly a businessman . Decisive and clear in your actions . " Chen Wei leaned against his chair and laughed . "Then I will be straightforward as well . I heard that Mr . Jiang’s Future Technology had some small conflicts with Wanghai’s local government?"
When he asked this question, Jiang Chen clearly sensed that Chen Wei was testing him .
"Future Technology is only a normal tech company, how would we have conflicts with the local government," Jiang Chen replied without much emotion .
If word spreads on the streets, it certainly would negatively impact its reputations .
"Haha, I sometimes don’t think before I speak," Chen Wei realized that he was too direct and apologized while laughing .
"No problem . "
"I heard rumors that Future Technology plans to relocate its headquarter . Did Mr . Jiang ever considered Xiangjiang as a destination?" Chen Wei asked .
Relocate to Xiangjiang?
Jiang Chen was somewhat skeptical . He looked at Chen Wei .
Although he certainly considered establishing Future Technology’s Greater Han headquarter in Xiangjiang before, he didn’t understand why Chen Wei would bring this up .
As if he had understood the confusion apparent on Jiang Chen’s face, Chen Wei smiled and waved his hand at his bodyguard/assistant . He took a piece of a document from his hands .
"Because of my relationship with the director of economic development bureau, Su Changyin, the reason for my disturbance this time is at the request of my old friend . "
As Chen Wei spoke, he handed the document to Jiang Chen .
Jiang Chen briefly scanned the document as an interested expression surfaced on his face .
One year tax-free, three years tax of only half taxable . The generous offer was countless times better than the policy given by Wanghai’s local government . With the current profitability of Future Technology, the policy of one-year tax-free would save Jiang Chen four billion RMB in tax .
Also, with the consideration of the headquarter relocation, some of the employees would also need to be relocated . Xiangjiang government also provided a generous employee immigration policy to Future Technology . They provided one hundred allocations of mainland residency to convert to Xiangjiang residency to ease Future Technology’s employee's relocation .
Seeing the interest on Jiang Chen’s face, Chen Wei also had a smile on his face .
"Is the policy given by my old friend enough to please Mr . Jiang?"
"Extremely pleased . I just don’t know if the Xiangjiang government would maintain fair and just in policymaking?" Jiang Chen asked nonchalantly as he flipped through the document in his hands .
Chen Wei first paused for a moment as he heard the words before he started to laugh .
"Mr . Jiang, you are worrying too much . I can’t promise anything else . But on the point of being fair and just, that I can guarantee . Xiangjiang is not as complicated as Wanghai . Everything must follow the law here . "
Fair and just? The law?
Although Jiang Chen's expression did not change, he had a differing opinion .
The world knew about Xiangjiang’s renowned gang presence . Chen Wei himself was probably not a law-abiding citizen . How many decent businessmen could open an entertainment company in Xiangjiang .
But even so, Jiang Chen was extremely pleased with Xiangjiang government’s attitude .
"Is that so? That’s perfect then . " Jiang Chen grinned as he put the document on the table, "Regarding this investment plan, I am pleased . If all the terms in the plan can be followed through, I can say with confidence that Future Technology’s Greater Han headquarters will be located in Xiangjiang . "
A trace of joy flashed across Chen Wei’s face as he congratulated, "Haha, then on behalf of my old friend, I here welcome Mr . Jiang’s presence in Xiangjiang . "
To Chen Wei’s words, Jiang Chen accepted with humility .
"Speaking of this, to relocate to Xiangjiang, does Mr . Jiang have any plans regarding the location of the new headquarter of Future Technology?"
When he recalled Chen Wei’s identity, Jiang Chen finally understood the intention behind his visit .
"Currently no, does Mr . Chen have any good recommendations?" Jiang Chen smiled .
"Haha, then I will be straightforward . " Chen Wei didn’t hide his intention as he had seen from Jiang Chen’s expression that he already guessed the reason for his visit . He took another document from his bodyguard’s hands .
"Nanfeng Real Estate has a recently developed office building . It is located in Kowloon near the metro station and a comprehensive set of amenities are included . Is Mr . Jiang interested?" Chen Wei smiled .
He took over the document from Chen Wei’s hand as he flipped through the specifications .
All in all, he was pleased . Compared to the building in Wanghai, Nanfeng Real Estate’s building was better in both appearance and amenities .
"What’s the price?"
"Two billion HKD, or equivalent to 1 . 65 billion RMB," Chen Wei said .
Jiang Chen gave it a thought before nodding .
"This is a reasonable price and I am pleased with the building . As to the acquisition process, I will leave it to the professionals in the company to take care of . "
Seeing Jiang Chen nod, Chen Wei felt relieved as he had a trace of gratitude in his expression .
"Thank you very much . "
