Mr. Kong Qingping, Chairman of COLI said, “During the first half of 2013, strict tightening measure continued to apply in China property market. However, due to strong rigid demand, rise in both the home price and transaction volume was seen. There was improvement in the sentiment of the land market as well. Meanwhile, the property market transactions in Hong Kong and Macau have slowed down after the measures launched. Looking ahead, the Group will persistently enhance its competitive advantages through improvement in its management capability, operation mode and product structure, product quality and branding. The competitive edges of the Group will lead to ample opportunities and excellent performance. We are confident to maintain our pioneer and leading position in the China property industry. To grow into an evergreen enterprise, COLI will move steadily and firmly ahead with its strategy of continuous strengthening of corporate governance, practicing a high level of corporate citizenship, thus attaining a win-win outcome for COLI, its shareholders, business associates, staff members and the community.”
