Painted sign, Yangdi (2)

Many painted signs can be seen across rural China and the small village of Yangdi on the western bank of the River Li, between Guilin and Yangshuo, is no exception. Several signs are of a political nature but a few are adverts for Chinenes companies.
This is the case of the painted sign below. Political messages tend to be much more sober. Unfortunately I haven't managed to identify which company is advertised on this wall. The only character I could recognise is the one on the left on the first line: "guó", which means "country."

Location: Yangdi, Guangxi province, China / Picture taken in September 2009
