Chan Chauto Interviewed by the host Kanghui

Chan Chauto said in an interview with the host Kang Hui at the ceremony, the success of a company was built upon China’s economic development, therefore when CEFC China was recognized as a success or a miracle, it was in fact the success of China’s economy development. 70% of CEFC China’s development owes to  national strategies, 20% its keen insights into these strategies, and 10% relentless efforts of all its team members who have been firm and persistent with CEFC China’s strategies over years in developing the cutting-edge mechanisms and brand resources.
