A SENIOR executive from Cosco, 39-year-old managing director of China Shipping Development (Hong Kong) Marine, a subsidiary of Cosco Shipping Energy Transportation, Jia Libin, leapt to his death from a high-rise hotel in Taipei last Friday.

According to Taipei's Taiwan News Mr Jia jumped from a window of the 15th floor of the Sunworld Dynasty Hotel in the Taiwanese capital, in an apparent suicide.



Police found a nine-page, hand-written suicide note in the room, which was in simplified Chinese, according to local media reports. In the note, Mr Jia mentioned that he had visited the US in 2011 to seek treatment for depression, and said that he had felt he had reached a bottleneck in his life.



Mr Jia was rushed to hospital where he was later declared dead.



When Mr Jia arrived in Taiwan on December 18, he listed 'enterprise exchange' as the purpose of his visit and was originally slated to leave Taiwan on December 28, according to media reports.



COSCO Shipping Lines Co, Ltd is headquartered in Shanghai and is listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. The Chinese state-owned enterprise mainly transports oil and coal along China's coastal areas, and a report surfaced in September that the company had taken over ownership of the Port of Kaohsiung.
