A Chinese company is hoping to build a “health village” in south Iceland.
RÚV reports that the company in question, Smart Cities International Limited, signed a statement announcing an interest in financing and building a health village in Flúðir, an area known to many in the capital area as a popular spot for summer homes. The Icelandic company Flúðir Spa has the intention of executing the actual construction of the project.
Árni Gunnarsson, the director of Flúðir Spa, told reporters that representatives of Smart Cities will soon be arriving in Iceland to begin negotiations.
Smart Cities is reportedly one of China’s growing companies, looking to lead the way in the field of green and sustainable industries. The company, which employs about 8,000 people, works in close cooperation with the Chinese government.
