1. shouldering the mission to serve the greater good and resolutely acting on national strategic priorities

coordinating subsidiaries to serve the real economy: by faithfully embracing the guiding principles set forth by the central financial work conference, we harnessed the strengths and capabilities of citic financial holdings and strictly complied with financial regulatory requirements. this enabled us to effectively prevent and defuse financial risks, and thereby contribute our unique strengths to the country’s path of financial development with chinese characteristics. citic financial holdings improved its holistic management mechanism and optimised its integrated service models for strategic customers and “entrepreneur offices”, offering more comprehensive solutions better tailored to the real economy. citic bank steadily improved its credit structure and increased financing support, leading to double-digit full-year growth in medium- and long-term loans for the manufacturing sector, loans for strategic emerging industries, inclusive finance and green finance. as leading brokerages, citic securities and csc financial increased their proportion of direct financing. they completed equity and bond financing of rmb4 trillion during the year and supported the listing of 67 companies, retaining leading market shares in onshore equity and bond underwriting. citic trust grew in scale, with expansion in low-risk segments including trust service and asset management trusts. citic-prudential life leveraged its unique advantages to provide long-term financial support in areas including infrastructure construction, development of small and medium-sized enterprises, and technological innovation.

enhancing efficiency to ensure resource supply: the successful listing of citic metal effectively facilitated the release of citic limited’s intrinsic value. during the year, we leveraged the company’s strategic network of overseas resources. the kk copper mine in the democratic republic of the congo produced a record high volume of over 390,000 tonnes. the las bambas copper mine in peru successfully fulfilled its operational objectives by stabilising production and prioritising transport logistics. the sino iron project overcame challenges including labour shortages to produce over 20 million tonnes of concentrate for the fifth consecutive year.

fostering open cooperation through the belt and road initiative: citic construction’s major projects, including the belarusian agro-industrial complex project, progressed steadily while the east-west highway in algeria was fully commissioned. apart from undertaking high-quality landmark projects, citic also focused on other fields such as education and training, agricultural cooperation, environmental protection, and health and sanitation. during the year, we rolled out a series of “small and beautiful” projects, including citic dicastal’s high-tech talent special training camp in morocco, citic agriculture’s assistance to the seed industry and citic environment’s water plants in indonesia. these initiatives successfully reinforced a positive image for chinese enterprises overseas.
