The “2-pillar” strategy will remain unchanged with strategic investments to be pursued, and its international DNA be sustained. The resources will be allocated globally to ensure its well-balanced industrial footprint. Adisseo will continue to consolidate its leading position in the market and keep investing in innovation, in people, in CAPEX, in digitalization as well as in external growth opportunities.” said Hao Zhigang.
