Xin Yue Jiang, Chairman of CITIC Telecom International Holdings, was interviewed by Ta Kung Pao:
Since its listing ten years ago, CITIC Telecom has transformed from a medium-sized telecommunications company which was only engaged in international telecommunications business, into a leading multinational integrated telecommunications and ICT services group in Asia Pacific, and has become the telecom flagship of CITIC Group. Our achievements is attributable to the opportunities, customer trust, CITIC Group’s support, shareholders’ support, and all the dedicated staff around the world.
In these 10 years, the Group grew from “0” to “1”, keeping its pace to success.
In the next decade, the Group will continue to thrive. We are definitely not satisfied with the current status. There are lots of opportunities following the rapid development of 5G, IoT, Big Data, Cloud Computing & AI. Opportunities also arise from globalization, the ’Belt and Road’ initiative, ’Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area’ project, which we could ride on and further speed up our business development.
Past ten years has become part of our history,
and we are dedicated to starting a new chapter for a brighter future.
