before becoming a truly great company, Jingdong must also fight for the status of the industry in the future, and strive to demonstrate the effectiveness of its profit model.

an interview with Liu Qiangdong, and in 2010, the annual turnover of Jingdong in just close to 10 billion yuan, the final interview published in the cover version of Chinese Forbes magazine in 2011 second period, the title is "the next Ma Yun?".
since then, I have never formally interviewed him, just not long ago in CCTV-2’s "dialogue" as a guest in the recording scene, to face him again.
