Plans are also underway to establish a further eight additional outlets throughout China by the end of 2017.
"They (Golin) have a reputation for driving awareness and support for commercial properties in China and we’re confident that they will achieve the same for us, establishing Florentia Village as a top luxury outlet destination in China," said Florentia Village Marketing Director Fiona Wang.
