Here at Orient Paper, we continually strive to adopt more advanced technologies and modern management practices in the execution of our business development strategy. Since our inception, we have committed to this strategy, allowing us to grow into one of the leading paper manufacturers in the North China region as we produce and distribute our paper products throughout China. Through expansion into higher margin products and larger production scale, we have achieved significant growth in the past decade in terms of financial strength and market recognition.
We are fully committed to being a socially and environmentally responsible enterprise even as we consistently expand our traditional paper production capacities to capture a greater share of the rapidly growing market, utilizing environmental-friendly production processes. Our sludge-recycling water treatment facility and our eco-friendly, recycled paper based manufacturing processes are just a few examples of our efforts to change people's impression that paper making in China is a highly polluting industry. We take great pride in our environmental protection track record.
Papermaking is a marvelous Chinese invention with thousands of years of history. It's been our continuous exploration and pursuit to apply innovative methods and new technology to this historical process to ensure we push the pace of technological evolution and meet the needs of rapidly changing market demand.
With the listing of our common stock on the NYSE MKT Market, we will continue to strengthen our corporate governance and create long term value for our shareholders.
