Pioneering New Possibilities after Forty Years of Success

The year 2019 marked the 70th anniversary of the founding of PRC, while it is also the 40th anniversary of the CITIC group. In the past 40 years, we have always been committed to contributing to the country by positioning ourselves as the pioneer to innovate, while persisting in fulfilling our political, economic and social responsibilities as a state-owned enterprise. At CITIC, we strive to excel in every aspect of our business to eventually contribute to every community in China. To achieve it, we closely connect ourselves with the public, country and society and the era we live in.

We strive to build on our success of the past forty years and continue our good practice. At the same time, we see it as a starting point, as the CITIC group has greater responsibility, for which clearer goals and direction for our future are necessary. We will continue to live up to our core values of “integrity, innovation, cohesion, integration, dedication and excellence” as our core values and bring “CITIC 32 characters” to life. To fulfill our corporate responsibility, we will also continue to improve our employee, environmental, brand, and community welfare management, while exploring new ways to build a better future for humanity and the natural environment together with our country.
