            In order to contribute to the economic growth in China and ASEAN countries, we have been actively opening stores in these regions under one of our Group-wide strategies, shift to Asian Markets, formulated in the three-year Medium-term Management Plan. On December 19th, Aeon Mall Wuhan Jinyintan opened in Wutan City, Hubei Province, China as our first store in the inland area of China. The Mall was constructed under the cooperative agreement with the Municipal People’s Government of Wuhan City. In the agreement, Aeon plans to develop five large-scale shopping malls within four years, two of which have already been under construction. Located in Dong Xi Hu District, a designated development zone going through rapid urbanization, the Mall offers the local residents Japanese “hospitality” with smile as well as quality goods and services under the concept of “Life Partner Mall.” On the opening date, we welcomed more than 80 thousand people. Aeon will continue to promote its shift to Asian Markets in order to enrich people’s lives in Asia.
