These include to strengthen production innovation and technology upgrade, produce more value-added and medium-to-high products to satisfy the demand of the domestic market, improve internal management and expand the geographical coverage of business continuously. The Group believes opportunities exist amid a turbulent market. Meanwhile, under the government's policy of "expanding domestic demand", a steady and relatively rapid growth had been achieved in the domesticmarket, which definitely was the primary factor for the tentative recovery of the textile industry."
