In the 3G tender bids offered by China's three largest telecom operators, the Group has achieved a leading position in WCDMA network projects by successful deployments in more than half of developed municipalities in China, including Guangdong, Fujian, Shandong and Tianjin. Meanwhile, the Group secured solid presence in the previous TD and CDMA tenders and performed well in the previous 3G terminal biddings.
Looking ahead, ZTE aims to consolidate its 3G market share and will continue to focus on investing in relevant network and terminal products. Greater effort will also be made to secure businesses from multi-national carriers operating in Europe, the US and emerging markets to ensure continuous growth of the Group's business in spite of the current global crisis.
