Wei Zhu, Chairman and senior managing director, Accenture China
We have strong faith in the resilience of the Chinese economy. China has already demonstrated great determination in containing the coronavirus impact and has taken solid actions in resuming operation and bolstering business vitality. China is a key strategic market to Accenture. We are committed to leveraging our full-span digital capabilities to support the local businesses to bounce back quickly and unlock the enormous value promised by the digital economy.
At Accenture, we have been working around the clock to allocate from home and abroad sufficient protection equipment and maintain the health of our 16,000 employees, and we have donated medical equipment and related services valued at RMB 1million to support China in combating the virus. Meanwhile, a new internal Employee Assistance Fund has been set up to support those employees in need.
Thanks to our team's dedication and the support and care from the government, our company's operation and quality services to clients have been undisrupted, and we are also actively exerting our industrial expertise and capabilities and contributing our knowledge-sharing and tailor-made solutions to help businesses navigate through the current challenging time.
Looking ahead, we foresee innovations led by digital technologies such as artificial intelligence, data analytics, mobility and IoT will play an even more important role in driving the growth of the Chinese economy, as well as helping enterprises today to increase efficiency and agility and explore new business opportunities.
