Liang Yu had to remove a foray into the comprehensive B2C business plan from the work backlog folder. He is a company specializing in the management of cosmetics e-commerce company, the company originally intended to cosmetics as the core to the expansion of the daily necessities, and ultimately made the whole category of life online supermarket.
now he and his boss had to give up the plan.
