Mr. Jing JU, Chief Executive Officer of Chindata Group, said, "We continued to embrace transformation in the second quarter. In China, with the development of digital economy being a long-term prospect with less uncertainty, the value of IDC industry as key fundamental infrastructure is being increasingly apparent. At the same time, differences in the underlying capabilities of players will likely become a key driver of diverse performance. However, the pandemic has also disrupted the supply and demand chain in the broader Asia Pacific emerging markets, posing challenges to the implementation of new solutions. Our transborder supply chain with the new R&D method and product solutions will be fully verified against this background. To further cope with these challenges, Chindata Group has remained fully dedicated to core capacity build-up covering green-field development, integrated energy solution and white-labeling of key digital infrastructure equipment. We have maintained the rapid growth of the scale of our deliverable high-value infrastructure and are constantly supporting our industry-leading clients in the zero-carbon transformation and swift scalability of their business in the Pan Asia Pacific region. We hope to join hands with more partners along such course in the future."
