The first confirms our leadership in Mexico and in the Latin America, while the second illustrates our expertise and the strength of our portfolio with several different retail formats and will allow us to further extend our reach in relevant markets through the very interesting travel retail channel of cruise ships, which is one of our strategic growth areas.”
