MANILA -- China Harbour Engineering has clinched a contract for a $1 billion land reclamation project to extend SM Prime Holdings' Mall of Asia complex in the Manila area, with construction greenlighted to begin next year.

The company is among a group of Chinese construction businesses working on at least five separate land reclamation projects in Manila Bay that will in effect leave the U.S. government's bayside embassy in the Philippine capital surrounded by reclaimed land.
