In these few years, we have been focusing our efforts on cost efficiency by working smart and improving workflows. As we have just reached our 50th anniversary milestone, I am pleased to say we are now well-positioned to reap the rewards of those rigorous efforts. We have become a lean, efficient and result-oriented organisation.
In parallel to better utilising our existing assets and optimising our operations, we have also progressed in the strategic use of new technology, which are being tested and introduced at a number of our terminals around the world.
Cost efficiency itself, however, does not propel the dynamic growth of the group. We remain keen in seeking new business opportunities, pursuing every potential project to ensure that the new investment will provide value to our customers, stakeholders and shareholders.
With this approach, we have been working on many projects. These projects, once invested, would further strengthen our port network and extend our reach into new markets and businesses. I am excited to share with you that we have recently secured a few good projects in different locations. These projects will surely be propelling our future growth.
Lastly, I am proud to say that our management team has been able to tackle the many challenges we are facing today. Our accumulated experience has sharpened our perceptiveness in making decisions in these changing markets and challenging competition landscapes. Coupled with your passion and professionalism, I am confident that we are ready to continue building a bigger and stronger network, better serving the community, maritime industry and traders.
