Glory Star plans to focus on four areas during the development of the park, including new media, new retail, technology, and the Company’s internal vocational program “Cheers Academy”. The Company’s development plan and areas of focus will help to cultivate the surrounding location in a distinctive manner and will also create an environment capable of supporting multiple businesses including a new zone for retail-themed experiences.

We believe that this development will not only serve to better satisfy the desire of citizens for a more enjoyable life, but will also help to further promote the exploration and development of China’s new economy.
