As consumers move towards products that enable higher living standards, more and more traditional manufacturing enterprises are turning to INGDAN.com for transformation and product upgrades with more smart features,” said Jeffrey Kang, CEO, Cogobuy Group. “In addition to Haier, we are also working with other renowned household electrical appliance manufacturers in China. We expect growing demand from large traditional manufacturers to accelerate INGDAN.com's monetization, and grow GMV and earnings for Cogobuy Group. As we near the end of 2016, these developments point to our continued strong performance in the coming year.”
