Not only in clothing, food, housing, travel, etc. For example, the increase in consumption of food is not just beef. Future beef consumption may increase by about 50%. In future, the 365 factory will make alliance with other Uruguayan beef factories so that to have a further cooperation and transaction with Hozhong Overseas and Nuohe.
