China Post focuses on its brand strategy, continues to forge its brand value, accelerates the construction and management of China Post brand, constantly improves its planning, enriches its substance, strengthens its system and the publicity, and demonstrates the postal culture, and tells its brand story of “of the people and for the people”, so as to enhance the overall image of China Post brand.
Faced with the new situation of the deep integration of the Internet, big data, artificial intelligence (AI) and the real economy, together with people's needs for postal service in their striving for a better life, Liu Aili pointed out that China Post will fully focus on customers’ new demand of consumption upgrading and carry forward the spirit of innovation, craftsmanship and collaboration. It will also fully demonstrate its outstanding achievements in its reform and development in the new era, and continuously improve its comprehensive strength to be the “national team” of the industry, thereby pushing forward its brand upgrading, and achieving a breakthrough in its brand value, and ultimately facilitating the high-quality development of the enterprise.
Liu Aili pointed out that brand building is key to high-quality development and supply-side structural reforms; it is key to people's sense of fulfillment, happiness and security; it is also key to China's international image and international competitiveness. Above all, it is a strategic, comprehensive and systematic project. Then he concluded that in this new era, China Post is willing to join hands with more domestic enterprises, pool all resources, and work hard to implement General Secretary Xi Jinping's call for “Three Transitions, thereby jointly advancing the development of Chinese brands, making new breakthroughs in such aspects as market share, brand loyalty and global leadership, and eventually contributing to the building of a moderately prosperous society in all respects and the realization of Chinese Dream of national rejuvenation.
