He further noted that combining Meitu's industry-leading AI skin testing technology and a large number of users with Secoo's excellent luxury services and advanced supply chain management capabilities is an exciting change for both companies. Further integrating these aspects into TryTry's new mode of operations will provide consumers with a higher quality shopping experience. "This cooperation enables each party to focus on their respective advantages," Mr. Wu added, "Meitu will continue to focus on its Beauty and Social Media strategy, while further opening up to unleash its core strengths of connecting and serving users and merchants. Meitu will also continue to work with quality partners and maximize the value of our user base."
