His knowledge and experience of Chinese culture is extremely valuable and we look forward to his insights and suggestions. LI is Chairman of a part of CQNews and as such, we have been permitted to collaborate with the Chinese Government and have established a powerful ally in CQNews.”Spencer Chesman, Co-CEO of Natur International, added, “Li has created a fantastic group in China with leading edge direct-to-consumer (“DTC”) software that he, and a team of 60 developers, have been working on for the last three years and that is currently valued at well over USD$6 million. This DTC software is now integrated into the Natur Group’s operations and is an essential part of the functional product offering that underpins our Chinese and International presence.”Li Zeng said, “I am honored to be part of Natur International which understands and embraces the Chinese culture. We have already begun to ardently work together to create a significant presence in the province of Chong Qing, which has a population of over 280 million people. Our expansion to other provinces in China will be smoother after our initial efforts in Chong Qing,”“Chong Qing is often overlooked, yet it has a direct train to Europe, making it a prime logistics center. We believe that our strategically located bonded warehouses, flat rate import duties, innovative Pengwin vending machines, and propriety direct-to-consumer software, is a strong foundation that positions us well for market leadership. The focus on functional products is significant as well, as it contributes to the health and wellness sector in our country by improving the quality of life, which is an important focus in China at this time. In addition, we are currently working to be one of the first to obtain a license to distribute CBD products in the Chong Qing province,” concluded Mr. Zeng.Paul Bartley, Co-CEO of Natur International, stated, “I have known Li for over 5 years and can qualify him as one of the leading people in China that is addressing changing consumer demands with exceptional software tools and dispensaries, such as bonded warehouse vending machines. I have been in China for over 21 years and can attest that Li is a stellar personality and an exceptional person to work with. His integration of Chinese culture with an understanding of the global business mentality is unique, and we are proud to have him as part of our top management team.” Previously, Mr. Zeng spent 11 years building distribution and technology platforms for Hyperama PLC UK and EDEN UK Ltd, before establishing YiHaiTong Technology Ltd, (“YHT”), as a provider of nationalized e-commerce distribution platforms and technologies.
