Changhong Jiahua holdings limited issued the interim report 2019
In the first half of 2019, factors such as the escalating China-US trade frictions resulted in major fluctuations of the Chinese economy, which grew at a slower pace. Nevertheless, the overall national economy remained stable and progressive, running within its reasonable range. In the first half of the year, the Group continued with its business policy of “Professional Exploration and Growth of Value”, as it coordinated with upstream manufacturers to promote the application of cutting-edge technologies such as artificial intelligence, the internet of things, big data and cloud computing, leveraging new technologies to develop industry and technological solutions and establish a multi-dimensional distribution system.

The second half of 2019 is confronted by slower growth of the global economy, changing monetary policies among major economies, a myriad of uncertainties in the China-US trade frictions as well as fresh downward pressure for the economic growth rate of China. This, however, is in tandem with overall controllable risks as countercyclical economic policies further unleash their effect. The fifth mobile communications technology (“5G”) offers crucial support to high-quality economic development, with 5G development to lead the advancement and upgrade of relevant technology industries as well as promote the expansion and upgrade of information consumption. Endeavouring to promote its strategic upgrade to become an ICT comprehensive service provider, the Group will maintain its operation strategy of “All Channels, Specialisation, New Distribution, and Good Partners”, regard “Professional Exploration and Growth of Value” as its operational policy, follow the fresh trends in industry development and take the initiative to expand the product offerings powered by new technology.
