Public service starts in our daily lives, and through more frequent interactions and exchanges with the local community, the Group is able to gradually become part of that community. Today, the Group conducts activities in the neighborhoods around its operating locations, sponsoring neighborhood festival events, community cleanups, blood pressure checks and health examinations. We also work with local police to provide support for events like the opening and closing ceremonies of the Universiade, for which we rented out facilities for officers to rest and coordinate.
