At the same time, YuuZoo has formed YuuZoo Heilongjiang Sports Technology Co Ltd, a new joint venture with local parties in Harbin who will provide local expertise, management and support for the development of Nordic Sports Town. 

Says Thomas Zilliacus, chairman of YuuZoo Corporation: “The real estate development agreement marks a major new step in the history of YuuZoo. From its origins, as a small private developer of mobile VAS, the company has grown into a large listed eCommerce and eServices Group active developing and offering services in ePayments, eCommerce, social networking, streaming video services, DigiLogistics and mobile games to hundreds of millions of consumers in Asia, Africa and Europe.

Modern real estate, both residential and commercial, makes extensive use of a wide range of the eServices YuuZoo has developed. The downstream integration of the development and management of real estate enables us to generate significant new revenue through control of the entire value chain, in the same way our recent acquisition of a leading logistics company in Europe enables us to generate significant new revenue from the control of the full DigiLogistics value chain. The new joint venture we at the same time formed with strong Chinese partners will give us the required local support and knowhow for the development of the huge Nordic Sport Town, and also open the doors for many other projects”.
