In recent years, MCC Group has worked to fulfill its social responsibility as a central enterprise, and kept exploring and identifying new methods and concepts of charity. Breaking away from conventional charity of donating money, clothes, and articles, it has pumped new blood into recipients by improving their capability of sustainable development. By encouraging the initiative of recipients and training talents for poor areas, it has boosted the development of impoverished regions. Meanwhile, it has invested heavily in poverty reduction. In 2017, MCC Group donated a total of RMB 12.1 million, up 1086% compared with the RMB 1.02 million of 2011. With marked improvement in poverty reduction, it has been recognized by all circles of the society and built a sound image of central enterprise in shouldering social responsibility. Down the road, MCC Group will see the award as a new beginning, bear in mind its historical mission, and shoulder more social responsibility. It will invest more in poverty reduction and charity program, and give back to the society with sincerity, in a way to play its due part as an enterprise citizen in realizing the great victory of building socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era.
