CHINA OFFICE FOR PROJAGG
Projagg is in discussion with its Advisor for setting up a presence in China, Shanghai. That will help win confidence as we approach thousands of developers in China and tap into its billions of dollars development industry.
China ia a giant market worth billions of dollars a year!
China developers are facing a huge crunch. The rush for development projects and easy loans from banks lead to a large supply of projects, and lacking demand.
So, instead of greenfield development, Kelvin has suggested Projagg also look into "Re-Development" projects, which will be a bigger turning point, for many developers. On hand, Kelvin has a huge portfolio of such request, and SRE and Projagg may collaborate to work on the most attractive 20 projects soon.

NEW STARTUP OPPORTUNITIES
Being a Unicorn Breeder, LHGI is always on the lookout for new potential to acquire.
There are 3 areas we will be exploring;
Virtual and Augmented Reality can drastically improve everything we do, in very different ways. We expect huge adoption in businesses and public in 5 years' time. there will be major improvements, ease of use and adaptations, that will help many areas of applications; such as architecture, construction, medical, aviation, township planning. The list goes on. The potential upside is huge and LHGI wants to be part of this trending technology.
It is a fact that online eCommerce has destroyed retail markets as online shopping becomes much easier, convenient and extremely affordable, with complex logistics made cheap and easy. However, there are hundreds of thousands of Shopping Malls, with millions of retail shops all over the world. They are crying out for a solution to ease their worsening traffic and sales. LHGI believes instead of an Online to Offline business model, the opposite is more relevant. An Offline to Online business model is more in demand. Coupled with a sophisticated Indoor Positioning System, retailers may find an answer to their prayer.
Affordable Foldable Homes
The world is not lacking homes. The world is lacking affordable homes for the low and lower middle income families. The challenge is not about building a cheap house. There are many countries that can build very cheap homes; as little as $799 for a 120 sq ft tiny house.
What we are looking for is affordable, not cheap, yet quick to deploy, and giving dignity to the home owners. A pride of ownership is a must, to elevate their livelihood, will redirect families to strive for a better future. Our concept is to be able to find an Affordable, and Foldable home that can suit the different income group across the globe, as well as disaster-stricken area, where we can deploy 500 homes in a short period of time.
Apart from all those areas, LHGI will watch the AI and Big Data space as billions had been poured into startups; from driverless vehicles to facial recognition, artificial intelligence will play a very crucial role in our future. Scrambling for Big Data will help any businesses and governments to understand human behavior and what they will do next. These are inevitable technology that will change this generation and shake up the next.
