As we begin to exit the global health crisis, our primary responsibility is to contribute to the advent of the cities of tomorrow: more sustainable and more connected cities, made up above all of local links, in which business and retail - in a renewed format - will have its place. We need to design, manage and stimulate differently, constantly innovating to transform and develop neighbourhoods, cities, territories and our businesses” - explained Antoine Grolin, Chairman of the Ceetrus Board of Directors.
