MANILA - The Aboitiz Group said Monday its construction arm is looking to China to help expand its business, as it bets on the government's infrastructure program.

Aboitiz Construction chairman Jaime Jose Aboitiz was in China recently for talks with Shandong Electric Power Construction Corp and Dongfang Electric Co, the group said in a statement.

Both Chinese firms offered partnerships with Aboitiz, the company said.

Shandong Electric specializes in building, designing and operating power plants. Dongfang Electric is directly administered by the Chinese central government.
