Ctrip will attain trillion-yuan GMV two years sooner – CEO Jane Sun
Ctrip CEO Ms. Jane Sun said that the company will achieve its goal of reaching one-trillion-yuan GMV by 2018, instead of 2020 as previously anticipated.
Ms. Jane Sun, CEO of Ctrip, said during the company’s annual meeting on January 8 that Ctrip will achieve its one-trillion-yuan GMV goal by 2018, instead of 2020 as previously anticipated.
“By then the company will be taking a step further to pursue another goal of achieving two-trillion-yuan GMV in three years,” said Ms. Sun.
Ms. Sun also emphasized that Ctrip’s next step is to achieve internationalization. The company has established a leading position in the markets of China as well as the rest of Asia.
But globally, Ctrip still trails other truly globalized companies. This, as Ms. Sun described, is a necessary process and an opportunity for the company. (Translated by Jerry)
