Country Heights keen on auto-related JV

PETALING JAYA: Country Heights Holdings Bhd’s subsidiary Mines International Exhibition Centre Sdn Bhd (MIEC) is vying for a potential tie-up with AsiaAuto Venture Sdn Bhd (AAV) to set up a joint venture entity to expand into the automotive lifestyle or other automotive-related industry.

AAV is involved, among others, in the business of conducting automotive-related programmes such as Asia Automotive Award event and the Asia Automotive Ambassador Pageant event.
