Our business rebounded notably during the Period, recovering from the difficult times caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Looking ahead, we will remain mindful of such factors as labour shortage, inflation and rising finance costs. We will address future challenges with flexible and effective business strategies, continuing to take our business forward in good pace. In the ever-changing market environment, we will strive to seize every growth opportunity so as to create long-term and robust returns for shareholders.”
