The Petrochemical business segment insisted the "light assets and high turnover" strategy in 2021. While "con- trolling resources, expanding channels, and building sy- stems" on the supply chain, the Company constantly expanded global strategic purchase resources for LPG, took part in LPG operations, reduced purchase cost, and controlled purchase risks. By investing in VLGC and other transportation resources, it rationally controlled logistics costs, improved supply guarantee on the end of raw material purchase and competitiveness in cost. On the sales, it carried out work centering on "the marketing of values, strategies, and culture", actively boosted deepened cooperation mode for strategic customers, and formed the supply chain thinking and the business mode of value chain creation. As a result, it enhanced delivery eciency to customers, optimized customers' cooperation experience, and greatly lifted the depth, width, and satisfaction of customer cooperation.
