  Changsha Bailian Outlets Plaza, invested by Shanghai-based retail conglomerate Bailian Group, signed a cooperation framework agreement with 12 international luxury brands in various sectors, including Armani, Ferragamo, Hugo Boss, Coach, Michael Kors and Moschino.

  The 372-mu (24.8 hectares) shopping and entertainment plaza, with a total investment of 2 billion yuan ($300 million), is projected to open before Oct 1 next year.

  "Changsha county government will provide high-quality and efficient services to allow enterprises to enter the demonstration zone more quickly," Zhang said.

  Other projects in the zone, such as the Hunan SF Express E-commerce Industrial Park, Prologis Logistics Center at Changsha International Airport, China Unicom, and a Hunan branch of Okay Airways, will also create huge business opportunities.
