A new modern two-storey trade centre called "Global City" has opened in the southern administrative district of Moscow Saturday. Moscow Mayor Yuri Luzhkov took part in the opening ceremony. The total area of the trade centre is 15,800 square metres, and its sales area is 9,000 square metres. A free ground parking place for 480 cars is to be arranged next to the trade centre. The trade centre will have sections of 78 trading companies. The Perekrestok (Crossroads) supermarket with an area of 3,150 square metres will occupy the central place at the Global City trade centre. Global City shops will offer a wide range of goods (mostly Russian-made ones) to the buyers. The trade centre will also have seven public catering facilities (canteens and cafes), which could simultaneously seat 300 visitors. Speaking at the ceremony, the Moscow mayor congratulated residents of the Moscow southern district on the opening of this new and modern trading complex. Yuri Luzhkov pointed out that the Perekrestok supermarket at the Global City trade centre was the 29th supermarket opened in Moscow. The mayor attaches special importance to the fact that 90 percent of goods on sale in Global City are Russian-made. Luzhkov promised that "we shall work still further to promote Russian goods on the market and enhance their competitiveness."
