The meeting was ended with a summary made by Mr. Zou Chenghui. By comparing the current situation of PV industry to the migration of Kenyan Gnu, he said, it is all sorts of threats exposed to Gnus when they coming across the river they must pass that help identify the fittest. All industries may undergo summit and depression. However, PV industry has been growing at a rate of 20% since 2000 though currently it is in depression. This indicates that PV industry faces a bright future. Currently, Akcome should do a good job in three aspects, “operation cost method, performance assessment, and strict cost saving”, and work hard together to succeed by firmly holding the values of “serving client being the foremost”.
