"We decided to locate the World of Coca-Cola here because we have much confidence in it," said Mr. Glen Walter, Chief Executive Officer of Coca-Cola Bottling Investments Group China.
The World of Coca-Cola Chengdu was inaugurated on May 27 in north Chengdu’s Xindu District. It’s the Coca-Cola Company’s first one of its kind in southwest China and the second in the country.
At the opening ceremony, reporters from gochengdu.cn interviewed Mr. Glen Walter, Chief Executive Officer of Coca-Cola Bottling Investments Group China. "Chengdu is an amazing city. We decided to locate the World of Coca-Cola here because we have much confidence in it," he said with a placid smile upon his face and a bottle of Coca-Cola in one of his hands.
We’re Highly Confident in Our Development in Chengdu
Mr. Walter said he was very delighted to witness the opening of the first World of Coca-Cola in southwest China. With its fast economic development and pace of urbanization, Chengdu has been showing a strong potential of economic growth and broad prospect over the recent years. "That's why we chose the city as a major venue for Coca-Cola's cultural heritage. On one hand, we’re confident in our development in Chengdu and the entire Sichuan market. Our business here has embarked on a path of sustainable development. We hope to partner with Chengdu in all aspects to create a win-win situation for both parties. On the other hand, when we endeavor to provide Sichuan consumers with high quality products and services, we bring more joy into their lives." Mr. Walter told us he wanted to incorporate the image of the giant panda into the World of Coca-Cola Chengdu. "Maybe in the future visitors can see a panda drinking Coca-Cola on the wall here," Mr. Walter said wittily.
