Suning Signs Cooperation Agreement with Czech Trade Promotion Agency to Expand Business in Europe, Strengthen 'Belt and Road' Ties

NANJING, China, May 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Suning Holdings Group ("Suning" or "the Group"), a market leader in the retail, real estate, media and entertainment, investment, sports, and financial services industries, has signed a cooperation agreement with the Czech Trade Promotion Agency and announced the launch of the "Czech Pavilion" -- a new section on the Group's online shopping site, Suning.com, which will sell products from the country.

Signing and Launching Ceremony of the Czech Pavilion between Czech Trade Promotion Agency and Suning.com

The Belt and Road Initiative ("the Initiative") is a Chinese development strategy that focuses on connection and cooperation primarily among China and Eurasian countries. Suning's new "Czech Pavilion" is one of the first endeavors to reach the markets of the Initiative. It sells more than 200 Czech products, including food, cosmetics and clothes.

Milos Zeman, President of the Czech Republic, attended the signing ceremony in Nanjing after attending the Belt and Road Initiative Forum for International Cooperation that concluded in Beijing on May 15.

President Zeman spoke highly of the Belt and Road Initiative, as well as what Suning has done to introduce overseas brands to China.

"The Initiative is a very great strategy. It's not merely about a 'road.' It's more about 'connectivity.' Suning is a very successful company. We hope more products from the Czech Republic can be brought to Chinese consumers by Suning."

Zhang Jindong, chairman of Suning Holdings Group, said that the "Czech Pavilion" marks the start of a wide range of cooperation projects with Czech companies, adding, "It also opens a new chapter in Suning's international business plan."

Suning was chosen by the Czech Republic as a major partner to strengthen "Belt and Road" ties because of the Group's performances in six industries as a leader in both online and offline retailing in China alongside its long history of opening up new markets. The company's e-commerce network now covers a range of regions around the world, including Hong Kong, Japan, ASEAN countries, Germany and the United States.

Zhang said that Suning will integrate resources from the six industries that it has a presence in and carry out multiple cooperation projects with Czech companies.

"The Czech Republic is quite strong in football. Suning has its own football clubs. We will team up to nurture football talent in the future."

"For enterprises, the 'Belt and Road Initiative' is a powerhouse of opportunities. I hope we can build ties with more countries to boost the development of more companies, and offer more and better choices to consumers."
