Despite that, we remain focused and committed towards our goal in delivering safe and comfortable products and services through responsible, sustainable innovations to improve the quality of our consumers’ lives. That said, we also plan to make significant investments to introduce new categories and products to our consumers, and going beyond that we would also dial up service level to our consumers with industrial best-in-class brand and product experience throughout before, during, and after sales. We will work more closely with the developer, designer, and architect community at a strategic cooperation level to achieve the bigger goals.”
