SAIPAN, CNMI (Marianas Variety, Feb. 1, 2008) – A groupo of Chinese investors paid a courtesy visit to Mayor Juan B. Tudela recently and expressed interest in doing business on Saipan, according to Tony Benavente, the mayor’s public information officer.

He said the investors want to determine the possibility of opening a jewelry/gem factory and a mall here.

"They’re here on island to help the economy of the CNMI." Tudela said. "And I feel happy and proud that they’re interested."
