In the first three quarters, the EPC business accounted for about 44% of the company’s engineering contract orders. We expect the EPC business to remain stable in the future and drive the company’s gross profit margin to remain high.

Based on the chemical engineering business, the company actively develops infrastructure and environmental engineering contracting businesses that are related to the company’s traditional competitive advantages.
1) Infrastructure business: The company plans to continue to respond to national strategies such as the Yangtze River Grand Conservation and actively contract related infrastructure projects. It plans to have infrastructure revenue of 10 billion yuan within 2-3 years (we estimate that the proportion of revenue from the corresponding engineering contracting business is about 8-10%); 2)Environmental protection business: The company plans to continue its business development in the environmental protection fields such as industrial wastewater treatment and soil treatment through endogenous and extended M & A.
