The group "will soon emerge from its darkest moment," said the founder of the giant Chinese real estate group Evergrande, which is on the verge of bankruptcy.
The real estate company, which is collapsing under a debt of more than $ 300 billion, equivalent to 2% of China's GDP, is trying to calm the anger of property buyers and investors.
In a letter to staff on the occasion of the Mid-Autumn Festival, Su Jiagin, who founded the group in 1996, wrote that he was "firmly convinced that the Evergrande will soon be able to emerge from the darkest moment." ", reports the financial reference newspaper Securities Times.
He assured that the construction sites will be fully reopened in order to achieve the main goal: to guarantee the delivery of the buildings and "give an answer to buyers, investors, partners and financial institutions".
However it did not expand on how the company would achieve these goals.
Shu also thanked the staff for their hard work, as the last two days were holidays in China.
The announcement came at a time when the Hong Kong Stock Exchange is trying to stabilize the day after a fall of more than 3%, sparked by concerns about Evergrande's possible bankruptcy. The stock markets of mainland China were still closed today due to a holiday.
For its part, after the weekend and yesterday's holiday, Tokyo today recorded a strong decline at the beginning of the session, as did other world stock markets yesterday, including Wall Street.
The Evergrande real estate group acknowledged last week that it was facing "enormous pressure" and warned that it might not be able to meet its financial commitments.
