2017 Mid-Autumn Festival Greeting to All GCL Staff, Especially Those in Oversea Branches2017-10-01
Dear GCL Staff,
We will soon welcome the Mid-Autumn Festival, one of the important traditional Chinese festivals. This year, the Mid-Autumn Festival is so close to the National Day when we all Chinese enjoy a week-long holiday, so this year will be a record eight-day National holiday. At the threshold of the festivals implying family reunion, celebration, good fortune and wellbeing, I will extend the cordial regards on behalf of Golden Concord Group Limited and all the shareholders!
People always miss their families more on festive occasions. Particularly, in this special moment, I miss you, our staff in America, Australia, Africa, Indonesia, Vietnam, and other foreign countries far away from us in China: I am concerned about your work, your health, your safety and your wellbeing.
In 2017, it was you who left your hometown, traveling a lot to the untraversed place just for the responsibility on your shoulders. It was you who went through hardships, working hard and devoting yourselves without regret to eventually expand the business scope of GCL overseas.
In terms of our achievements this year, GCL was listed by China Enterprise Confederation/China Enterprise Directors Association as #144 out of the Top 500 Companies in China and remained #1 in the new energy industry. This is the second consecutive year GCL has been listed in the Confederation's top 500, increasing its rank from #176 in 2016. GCL was ranked #1 new energy company in 2016 as well. GCL saw steady performance and persistent efforts from the photovoltaic and natural gas sector, besides, our smart town programs are making debuts. We hear more exciting news from different businesses on projects related to Belt and Road Initiative of China. In the electric power, our Indonesian electric power project has started construction, marking big progress of internationalization of the group in the electric power business as the important step of GCL on the path of Belt and Road Initiative. Every step of the accomplishments resulted from your wisdom and efforts. As you are becoming more and more experienced in the extension of the overseas market, you also make greater and greater achievements even on the ordinary posts.
GCL will never forget what you have done. In fact, every progress you made represents the spirit of the Chinese people and China GCL. Now, allow me to pay tribute to you for your extraordinary contributions in the remote area and for your sacrifice for the collective interests on behalf of all the GCL people. Thank you for your selfless dedications!
The end of year 2017 is coming. We will still have much to do after we come back from the eight-day holiday. I am looking forward to more surprises and achievements this year and I do believe the GCL family can achieve so. Let’s set aside fears and stride to the next step.
When we are celebrating the Mid-Autumn Festival and National Day here in China, you still have to be on duty in the foreign countries. During the festival, please pay attention to the security in production and operation to ensure the personal and property safety. Besides, we should take good care of the staff and their relatives who will be there spending the festival, to make them feel the warmth as if they were at home. Remember to take my regards to them during the holiday!
We miss you, as much as your families in China. If you are abroad, please remember to make a festival call to your family with the modern communication tools and please also forward my most sincere regards to them.
Wish you all health and good luck!
Chairman of Golden Concord Group Limited
