Leadership in the Transformation of Forestry Ecology

CFGC seizes the opportunities presented by the 18th CPC National Congress to incorporate the concept of ecological civilization into the overall layout of socialism with Chinese characteristics - “five-in-one”. The Group has initiated business strategies of “Forests+”, “Parks+”, and “Lakes+”. The goals are to enhance the controllable forest area, implement a vertically integrated business model, develop ecotourism and water conservation fishery simultaneously.
