“Quality is our lifeblood,” said Yu during the company’s Internal Quality Conference. “We continue our commitment to the idea that serving consumers would be the guiding principle for the new Huawei Consumer Business Group, and vowed that every product we make should be guided by the needs and demands of our customers. The answer is that quality triumphs over everything because poor quality leads to bad reputation, which in turn harms the company. So quality is our lifeblood.”
