Wanda Ridong (Gold Coast) Development today welcomed Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott to the Jewel development site on the Surfers Paradise beach front.

Mr Abbott’s visit to the site of the $970 million development, backed by China’s largest property developer, comes just weeks after the two nations signed a Free Trade Agreement.

Wanda Ridong managing director, Weimin Xu, said the Prime Minister’s visit was an indication of the significance of the Jewel project to the Queensland and Australian economies.

“We’ve said from the start that Jewel is a $1 billion vote of confidence in the Gold Coast, Queensland and Australian economies,” Mr Xu said.

“We were honoured to have the Australian Prime Minister come to our site and gain an insight into how the project will take shape over the next three years.

When completed in the first half of 2018, Jewel will be Australia’s largest beachfront hotel and residential complex, the Gold Coast’s first absolute beachfront location in 30 years. 

Last year Mr Wang, the Wanda China's chief, gifted Prime Minister Tony Abbott with an authentic Auratic china tea set and some Tong Quing Hao tea which is now in use at the Lodge in Canberra.
