During fiscal year 2000 we have continued our international expansion, and there are now thirty-three countries containing at least one of the five chains forming part of Inditex. Four of them have been incorporated as new markets over the course of the last year. This growth is reflected to the greatest extent in the number of new stores, over 150, and the overall number of outlets, which reached 1,080 on January 31.
