"Cultural self-confidence" is the theme of the times, and it has become an extremely important resource, constantly reshaping the image and status of Chinese domestic brands.

  The driving force for the rise of the domestic product consumption track is not only the improvement of consumers’ national self-confidence and cultural pride with the enhancement of my country’s economic strength, but also the new heights of Chinese products and brands in terms of quality, design, technology, innovation, and supply. Strong support for new infrastructure such as chain, logistics, big data, and the Internet.

  For brands, whether they can grasp the opportunity of "out of the circle" and truly use product strength to gain consumers' love is the last word for development.
