Paul Fang: Keeping Our Eyes on the Stars for Another 50 Years
2018/01/01

2018-01-01 MIB

My Dear Colleagues,

Paul FangAs time rolls by, we’ve finally come to the end of 2017, a year of keeping the wind at our sails with resolution and confidence.

We will celebrate Midea’s 50th anniversary in 2018. The past five decades have been a brave adventure, witnessing relentless efforts. Like still waters running deep, we’ve pressed forward against the current of the times with persistent determination to change.

With the aspiration to make lives better, Mr. He Xiangjian started his business journey in a time of difficulty. We made our entry into household appliance manufacturing in 1980. Our sales revenue reached RMB 10 billion (US$ 1.54 billion) in 2000, and ten years afterwards, this figure increased tenfold to RMB 100 billion (US$ 15.37 billion). Midea Group was listed in 2013, and with our strategic transformation of business models over the same year, the gene of evolution and innovation is now deep in everyone’s heart. Every change we’ve made is in response to the need of the times and the market. Along the way, we’ve made marvelous achievements thanks to China’s reform and opening-up, and we’ve been through the painstaking transition of upgrading and transformation. There’ve been moments of adventure, and moments of uneasiness. The only thing we’ve never undergone is the fear of change and the future, as we’re firmly convinced of the notions of being alert in times of peace and survival of those who will keep changing.
