In a Weibo post, Zhang said- “This year we won’t cut back workers, we will keep on using the assets on our stages to support utilization, acquiring all the more assembling and administrations orders. At the point when the economy is terrible, the greatest preferred standpoint for online stages is to make occupations.”
