"Impacts from the pandemic were felt in the first few months of this year, but as lockdown measures are gradually loosened, we see a robust rebound thanks to our efforts taken on securing the manufacturing and supply chain, working closely with our global partners, as well as living up to the potential of our omnichannel online-offline retail system," said Chew Shou Zi, President of International at Xiaomi Corporation.
