Mitsui Marine to start insurance business in China.
Mitsui Marine & Fire Insurance Co. said Tuesday it aims to start business in China in the first half of 2001 by setting up a branch in either Shanghai or Guangzhou.
It will become the second Japanese nonlife insurance company to enter the Chinese market following Tokio Marine & Fire Insurance Co.
The company will offer services such as fire insurance to Japanese and foreign firms in China -- a business it has been seeking to start since setting up a representative office in Beijing in 1981.
Mitsui Marine & Fire has received approval from the Chinese government to establish a branch in China and now must ask for permission to start the insurance business, company officials said.
