On July 1, Tang Yong, chairman of Guofa Beiou Group, and Thomas, CEO of Matas, a Nordic drugstore chain retail giant, signed a comprehensive cooperation agreement in Changsha. Matas will set up a Chinese headquarters in Changsha and enter the Chinese market in an all-round way.
Peng Zheng, associate counsel of the Hunan Provincial Commerce Department, attended the signing ceremony and delivered a speech. He pointed out that in recent years, Hunan has been developing open economy and closer connection with countries all over the world. Though the five Nordic countries did not have frequent contact with Hunan before, their mutual understanding has been deepened since the Hunan Nordic Cooperation Economic Center opened.

Matas’ entering into Hunan market will effectively realize resource sharing between Hunan and Finland, complement each other's advantages, and achieve win-win results.
