Beijing Nanhaizi Milu Culture Conference
On August 24, our CEO was a speaker at the “Beijing Nanhaizi Milu Culture Conference” organized by the Daxing County. During this exciting conference, an official announcement was made stating that the Daxing County will submit the design of a possible mascot for the 24th Winter Olympics featuring the Milu deer. Should the Milu be one of the 2022 Winter Olympics mascots, it would place nature and animal conservation at the forefront of the games. A superb achievement indeed!
