A1: We are expecting top leaders to convey loud and clear messages that China remains committed to continue opening up, globalization, working toward a sustainable and fair business environment.

We also expect the government to elaborate more on how to construct a national strategy on food security.

We are expecting top leaders and legislators to convey strong confidence to its citizens that China's economy will stay strong, and present directions on how to ensure our economy keeps growing during the period of global economic slowdown.

A2: Thanks to nationwide relief policies and care we received from government at all levels and thanks to our strong business continuity plan, MDLZ China business is coming back and showing strong signals we can continue to deliver strong growth in China.

We are dedicated to the Chinese market, and will continue to invest in China's market, our brands and our people.

A3: Many of our business partners are small and medium-sized companies. The government has provided strong help to them, since these companies are essential to the success of our business, and helping SME's has also helped us.

Cuts to social security payments helped us in the first months.

Consumers have built a higher awareness towards health, well-being and food safety, this also represents big opportunities for our business.

A5: We are proud we were accredited as a Top Employer. We invest in our people and build capability to thrive in digitalization.

We keep expanding our frontline workforce to ensure we can offer our products to more and more stores in lower-tier cities and towns.
