Mr. Zhang Yue Jun, Vice Chairman & President of Comba Telecom, said, “The expected turnaround of the Group for the year of 2014 greatly encourages both the Group and its shareholders. Though facing a changing and challenging environment during the year, management has managed to seize the opportunity and improve the business performance, fully demonstrating the Group’s strong capabilities and solid foundation. We believe that the strong demand driven by network upgrades and our innovative technologies can help to drive the sustainable development of the Group in 2015.”
