We understand that, besides the deep business and management philosophy, a long-term vision and strategy is our guiding star to successes. We also learn that in order to survive and develop sustainably in today’s competitive environment, we must become the market leader; maintaining a sustainable balance sheet; highly focuse on corporate governance; only invest in the most profitable projects and take advantages of the markets that we participate in.

Maintain a sustainable balance sheet
We maintain a strong and sustainable balance sheet to ensure that the company is always in a safe position by minimizing the use of cash in M&A deals, developing projects; controlling the leverage at the conservative level; stepping up the model of sales bringing back cash flows in advance; not investing in short-term and risky projects.
Focus on execution
We believe that nothing but a fast, powerful and effective execution will help us to make our dreams and ambitions come true. For us, the execution is to attract and empowerthe most talented people; build the most simple and effective corporate governance system; establish the most rigorous financial and information control mechanism.
Focus resources on the “golden goose”
We understand that our resources are limited.

Our guiding principle is absolutely not to invest spreadly. Think big but act small is the way we are doing to creat the highest values.
