(Pink Sheets: EFTB) announced today that the Company's subsidiary, Excalibur International Marine Corporation, completed its inaugural passenger voyage across the Taiwan Strait on June 28, 2009. The voyage across the Taiwan Strait takes only 4 1/2 hours, but it took Taiwan and China 60 years to ease tension and for Taipei to agree to lift the ban on sea links with China's mainland.
The voyage was featured in a news article that has run in several internet news sites, including the Taiwan Sun and the Qatar Tribune. Jack Qin, the President and CEO of EFT BioTech Holdings, Inc., stated, "We are excited to be recognized by the regional press and this coverage shows that people are truly interested in this much needed passenger and cargo service."
