The Vema Seamount Authority announced today plans to reconnect with U.S. retail giant Walmart after six years, when the first contact was made. Another clear indication that the Kingdom of Mount Vema is back in business.
The initial contact with Walmart was first made in July 2012, when the government’s ambitious investment drive programme, was officially launched, and Walmart Inc. the American multinational retail corporation that operates a chain of hypermarkets, discount department stores, and grocery stores responded warmly to the invitation to invest in the Kingdom of Mount Vema.
In a letter, back in 2012 Walmart responded positively to the Royal Mount Vema Embassy’s ‘preliminary’ request for Asda Group Plc to indicate if they would be interested in taking up the offer to enter the Kingdom of Mount Vema’s expanding economy.
The letter was signed by Leigh Hopkins, then the retail giant’s Vice President: ‘As you may know,’ he said, ‘we are always looking for new markets where we can improve the quality of life of people through our everyday low prices.’
‘We will keep your comments in mind in case opportunities arise in that area at the appropriate time.’ Hopkins, who is also responsible for the International Business Unit of Walmart, was responding to the then Royal Mount Vema Embassy’s Honorary Consul’ s proposal to Asda Group Plc for the supermarket chain to invest in Mount Vema.
Now the appropriate time has come. Mount Vema is ready for Walmart and contact will be made this month as The Vema Seamount Authority continues his tireless efforts to find reliable partners and suppliers for the City of Mount Vema Project.
The Mount Vema Monarchy is keen to have Asda Group Plc on board because the company has the ability to create a reliable distribution infrastructure with the backing of its parent company Wal-Mart Plc, which would create an inflow of jobs to the already vast empire that is Asda and it would allow Asda Group Plc to create a larger international presence alongside any financial rewards it may gain.
The proposal, presented to Asda about six years ago, was part of His Mount Vema Majesty’s government’s deliberate investment drive to lure major international companies to tap into the kingdom’s developmental projects.
Other companies targeted back in 2012 that will be re-approached by the government includes retail giants Tesco, Alliance Boots, mobile phone operator Vodafone, and financial service providers HSBC Holdings, Barclays, JP Morgan Chase and Goldman Sachs banks.
