VietNamNet Bridge – Joe Jackson, 82, the father of the King of Pop Michael Jackson, arrived in Vietnam February 11 to attend the ground-breaking ceremony of a five-star hotel project in the southern province of Long An.

On February 12, he met with Phan Thi Phuong Thao, chairwoman of the Khang Thong Group in Ben Luc district, Long An province as an independent investor of the group’s five-star Happyland hotel.

As an independent investor, he is set to be one of the signatories to a project to build a five-star, 1,000-room hotel covering 15 ha in large-scale Happy Land amusement park worth around US$2 billion located in Ben Luc District in southern province of Long An, 20 minutes away from Ho Chi Minh City.

Michael Jackson’s father invests in $2bn ‘Happyland’

Posted on: 14 Feb 2011 at 10:54 AM

Joe Jackson, the father of late pop superstar Michael Jackson, has lent his star billing to a $2 billion hotel-entertainment complex called “Happyland” in Vietnam.

Jackson was on hand at the official groundbreaking ceremony over the weekend, as work started on the major development project in southern Long An province.

He is also expected to invest in a five-star hotel forming part of the project.

Compared to Disneyland by lead investor Khang Thong Group, the project will also include a water park, film studio, theatres, a riverfront boardwalk, restaurants and other facilities, according to the group.

“My wish is to promote this project to all friends across the world so that they understand more about your country,” Jackson told Vietnamese television.

During a live broadcast of the groundbreaking ceremony, Jackson added his legendary son – who died in 2009 – “lived to make people happy and I am proud to maintain that, making Vietnamese people happier”.

Deputy prime minister Nguyen Thien Nhan explained Happyland would be “the largest tourism project in South Vietnam and south-east Asia”.

Happyland is expected to open in 2014.

Nhan went on to added the “international-standard” project near the southern metropolis of Ho Chi Minh City aimed to draw 14 million visitors a year including three million foreigners.

US$2 billion entertainment complex under construction

(VOV) - The Khang Thong Group organised a ground breaking ceremony for the Happyland Vietnam entertainment complex project in the Mekong Delta Long An province on February 14.

Addressing the ceremony, Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Thien Nhan said the project will not only promote the region’s socio-economic development and preserve the nation’s cultural value but also promote Vietnam’s image to the world.

He asked related ministries, agencies, and Khang Thong Group’s partners to help the project begin operation in 2014 as scheduled.

The US$ 2 billion Happyland Vietnam project covers a total area of 338 ha with Happyland Park, hotels, shopping centres, exhibition centres, restaurants, and indoor and outdoor theatres.

Once put into operation, the project is expected to create 10,000 new jobs for local people and attract 14 million visitors every year.

He seems to be quite busy strolling around ...  from March, 6th to 13th he will be on vacation in Germany:

Joseph Jackson on North Sea holiday in Carolinensiel

Joseph Jackson (81), father of the late pop star Michael Jackson, retreats on a holiday in Lower Saxony at the North Sea. From 6 March on Jackson will stay at Carolinensiel-Harlesiel for two weeks and enjoy a short run in a wellness program, as the Lower Saxony resort announced on Thursday. Jackson has been to Carolinensiel several times before, a spokeswoman reported.


original:
"Joseph Jackson macht Nordsee-Urlaub in Carolinensiel

Joseph Jackson (81), Vater des 2009 gestorbenen Popstars Michael Jackson, zieht es zum Urlaub wieder an die niedersächsische Nordsee. Vom 6. März an werde Jackson zwei Wochen lang in Carolinensiel-Harlesiel sein und im Kurzentrum an einem mehrtägigen Wellness-Programm teilnehmen, wie der niedersächsische Ferienort am Donnerstag mitteilte. Jackson habe schon mehrmals in Carolinensiel Urlaub gemacht, berichtete eine Sprecherin."

He looks good for 82 years, and this article also shows him respect for what he has achieved.
I'm happy for Vietnam to have this attraction.
I'm guessing Joe's investment money-wise is a pittance but his name stands for world-class/the best (MJ's father).

Yeah but you gotta wonder, when did they begin this place?  Was it when he was trying to get money from the estate, or get Katherine to give him money?  What is his investment and where does he get money?  How does he LIVE??  Does he work, has he in 40 years?  How does he get social security if he hasn't worked and paid in since his 30's?  Sorry, but I think this is Katherine's (Michael's money), and someplace down the road the money trail will lead to Michael.  Michael loves this sort of think after all....

Didn't Joe complain he needed more money because he didn't have enough? Yet he will invest in this. Reminds me of Jermaine not able to pay child support, yet traveling around the world and Murray broke but having enough to spend on everything but child support. I think it's like with Mike's so called dept. We think they're broke, but they're not. Smoke screens....

"I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be shrewd as serpents and as innocent as doves."  




Why not just tell people I'm an alien from Mars? Tell them I eat live chickens and do a voodoo dance at midnight. They'll believe anything you say, because you're a reporter. But if I, Michael Jackson, were to say, "I'm an alien from Mars and I eat live chickens and do a voodoo dance at midnight," people would say, "Oh, man, that Michael Jackson is nuts. He's cracked up. You can't believe a single word that comes out of his mouth."

This makes me laugh in a good way. This, to me, has Michael written all over it. Michael has been wanting to create another Disneyland type theme park and investing in this through his dad is perfect. Who knows, we may find out later that Michael is the the major stockholder.

I agree too - this doesn't fit the "I'm so broke" theme that has been following Mr Jackson around. Not just him but every member of the family travels quite freely and lives nicely. I think it's all a smokescreen too.

Thanks for sharing this awesome story. I think this could be part of the "takeover" that BACK spoke about. Blessings.

Michael Jackson's Dad invests in $2 billion

Michael Jackson's Dad invests in $2 billion "Happyland" Park


HANOI, Vietnam (AP) - February 14, 2011 (WPVI) -- Joe Jackson, father of late king of pop Michael Jackson, was in Vietnam to attend Monday's groundbreaking ceremony for a five-star hotel and amusement park called "Happyland."
Online newspaper VietnamNet said Jackson, 82, was at the groundbreaking as one of the investors in the $2 billion, five-star 1,000-room hotel and amusement park in southern Long An province, located about 20 minutes outside Ho Chi Minh City. It is scheduled to be finished in 2014, and is designed to attract up to 14 million visitors annually.

"I like discovering different cultures in the world," VietnamNet quoted Jackson as saying. "I like this project the most because it is located in a beautiful cultural and natural space."

Vietnam has promoted the project - which includes a water park, theaters and restaurants - as the region's largest entertainment complex.

Pop icon Michael Jackson, 50, died in 2009 from an overdose of the powerful anesthetic propofol and other sedatives. His doctor has pleaded not guilty to charges of involuntary manslaughter.

Michael Jackson was known for his creation of Neverland Ranch, a huge complex complete with an amusement park, in California where he lived.

This whole thing is just odd to me.
We always see Joe complaining that he is broke. Then he goes and does something like this????
I have a feeling that Michael is behind this! Why else would Joe invest in this if Michael weren't alive??

Hmmm, what is Joe's, in his 82, interest to invest money in someone's land? Who's behind this land? Who lent money to Joe to invest. No one just like that invests money in anything unless have BIG interest and SHARE, and LEGAL RIGHTS.

If I understand correctly  that Joe Jackson is investing in a 2billion dollar investment. That's nice. Then why does he complain he has no money? If you can invest in a 2 billion dollars investment you do have money.. I am sure he did not invest 2.00$  :lol:  I guess he won the lottery.. :lol:  So now we will not hear him complain that he has no money. Cool..  Blessings.

This may be nothing at all, probably is nothing but it raises a red flag with me about a game I play on Facebook called Treasure Isle. We have a "Happyland" phase or island we go through, a chimp with an afro named Bubbles Jackson, our rewards avatars say BAM when we get something special, we have a golden statue of a man that is a cross between King Kamehameha and Michael's HIStory statue. We have a lunar module capsule, black panthers, sun flowers, and the more I play this game the more "stuff" pops up every day that seems to be huge coin kee dinks lol.

I guess it`s all made up for publicity reasons  ... Joe Jackson might have been there and it might just sound better to present him as an investor. But I doubt it`s true --- rather think he got paid for attending (bringing in a "glimpse of glory" of his "late" son - like Jermaine is beeing invited at numerous places all over the world for the same reason). MJ still sells.
