During our fiscal year ended December 31, 2023, the COVID-19 Pandemic has been successfully brought under control and the adverse impacts of the pandemic have been gradually dissipating as economic activities resume to normal. The supply and prices of raw materials became stable during the year, and thus led to the decrease in the company's average unit costs and increase in gross profit for the year.

The Company's gross profit margin for fiscal year ended December 31, 2023 rose to 18.6% as compared to gross profit margin of 15.7% for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022.
