Suning will continue to serve customers with more 'visible' and 'touchable' omni-channel online and offline services and meet the needs of our consumers regardless of time and space."

Suning.com has been making efforts to strengthen its marketing strategy to create a more integrated experience, leading to a surging speed in its online business growth. In the first half of 2018, the Company's online goods transaction volume reached RMB 88.322 billion (US$13.05 billion), a 76.51% year-on-year increase. As of June 30, 2018, Suning.com had about 357 million registered users. Through June 2018, Suning.com's app saw a 64.34% year-on-year increase in the number of monthly active users.
