Only by self-innovation can an enterprise go further
Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, the concept of innovation has been placed in a core position in the overall development of the nation. Gree has made a good performance in the world stage with its self-innovated products. When more and more Chinese products go to the world, the image of Made-in-China is rebuilt. As the Chairperson of Gree Electric, Dong Mingzhu says, only by independent innovation can an enterprise go further.
