Zhang Ruimin, Chairman of the Board of Directors and CEO of Haier Group, in a conversation with John D Halamka, director of Harvard HTEC, compared the relationship between the aircraft and the airport with a metaphor for the cooperation. He said that Harvard HTEC has the world's most developed technology, which can be compared to the aircraft, and Haier through its innovative practice in the IoT era, has accumulated a huge user community, which can be seen as the airport; the aircraft needs the airport to land safe, so the cooperation between the two parties can be described as perfect match.
