Wang Miao Xu
I horse review: Modern Chinese, has always been the success of heroes, the explosive growth of the industry, I saw the boss in the BMW car laughing, not see the second bike cry.
"entrepreneurs" & I horse note that experienced capital mad for "Warring States", a melee fight, finally entered the harvest stage left for the king’s founder, did not dare to relax, especially after the industry leader finally listed bell, the founder of the original second bite very tight, enter a period of suffering: the boss will help bring just listed brand and capital advantage, sharpening, side pressure. Don’t let the market, can not wait for the acquisition of the second side, accomplish the whole task at one stroke, the formation can not shake the status of the industry.
