Soho Holdings will continue to beef up its four core businesses of investment, trade, the cultural industry and real estate, while enhancing size, performance and profitability as well. Equal emphasis will be placed on capital management and the real economy.

The group will enhance decision-making under a modern corporate system, fortify its ability to maintain and increase assets value, perform its social responsibilities, and explore scientific approaches to management that bring together all subsidiary companies and their staff members under one mission, bringing out the best in them.

Meanwhile, Soho Holdings will guard against corruption, and work out sound regulations and mechanisms in this regard. This includes the supervisory, discipline inspection and auditing bodies of the group, a complete set of financial regulations, accountability system and the reporting system for major issues.

Team building is another central task. By implementing effective evaluations and hinging payments on performance, the group stokes worker enthusiasm and nurtures a strong sense of responsibility. In this way it makes the best of employee expertise and strengths.
