Introduction, page 1


1.We note your response to comment 1 and reissue in part. In future filings, please revise your definition of "China" and "PRC" to state that the legal and operation risks associated with operating in China also apply to operations in Hong Kong, as PRC regulations that may not be currently applicable to Hong Kong companies may become applicable given the PRC's oversight of that region.


In response to the Staff’s comment, the Company proposes to include the following underlined disclosure in the referenced section (page reference is made to the 2021 Form 20-F to illustrate the approximate location of the disclosure) as shown below in its future Form 20-F filings, subject to updates and adjustments to be made in connection with any material development of the subject matter being disclosed:
