From July 19 to the morning of July 20, the group held a Corporate Culture Forum and 2009 Mid-Year Work Conference at Grand Regency Hotel. Chairman Zhang Jianhua made a speech themed “Responsibility & Action in Crisis”, in which he stressed that a Hiking person deems the responsibility as important as life. “Culture of Responsibility” is one of the features of Hiking Culture. It is the first choice of each Hiking person to take up the responsibilities to the society, the families, the company, the shareholders and the staff. Facing the international financial crisis, we should always give top priority to the interests of the shareholders and employees, and dedicate our best efforts to making development and good return of the company.
