Leigh & Orange and Templewater to expand business in the Middle East following John Lee’s visit
Business architecture background

Hong Kong businesses have begun to reap the fruits of Chief Executive John Lee’s visit to Saudi Arabia and the UAE in February. Architectural firm Leigh & Orange recently closed two deals on “multifaceted giga-projects” in Saudi Arabia and is in the final stages of concluding one in Qatar. The firm specializes in Modular Integrated Construction (MiC), which was used to make COVID-19 isolation units. Alternative investment firm Templewater is negotiating to upgrade Saudi Arabia’s bus fleets with zero-emission technologies and redesign its bus routes to ease traffic congestion. Its recent acquisition Wisdom Motor, which made Hong Kong’s first electric double-decker bus, is also considering establishing a production facility in the Middle East.
