accession number: 0000318989-16-000061.



Exhibit A


                 Pursuant to the instructions in Item 7 of Schedule 13G,
the following table lists the identity and Item 3 classification, if
applicable, of each relevant entity that beneficially owns shares of the
security class being reported on this Schedule 13G.


Entity 	ITEM 3 Classification
FIL INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT (HONG KONG) LIMITED * 	FI
FIL INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT (SINGAPORE) LIMITED 	FI


* Entity beneficially owns 5% or greater of the outstanding shares of the
security class being reported on this Schedule 13G.



                Pandanus Partners, L.P. ("Pandanus") owns shares of FIL
Limited ("FIL") voting stock. While the percentage of total voting power
represented by these shares of FIL voting stock may fluctuate as a result
of changes in the total number of shares of FIL voting stock outstanding
from time to time, it normally represents more than 25% and less than 48.5%
of the total votes which may be cast by all holders of FIL voting stock.
Pandanus Associates, Inc. ("PAI") acts as general partner of Pandanus.
Pandanus is owned by trusts for the benefit of members of the Johnson
family, including FIL's Chairman Abigail P. Johnson, but disclaims that any
such member is a beneficial owner of the securities reported on this
Schedule 13G.



                This filing reflects the securities beneficially owned, or
that may be deemed to be beneficially owned, by FIL, certain of its
subsidiaries and affiliates, and other companies (collectively, the "FIL
Reporters"). This filing does not reflect securities, if any, beneficially
owned by certain other companies whose beneficial ownership of securities
is disaggregated from that of the FIL Reporters in accordance with
Securities and Exchange Commission Release No. 34-39538 (January 12, 1998).


RULE 13d-1(k)(1) AGREEMENT


                The undersigned persons, on February 13, 2018, agree and
consent to the joint filing on their behalf of this Schedule 13G in
connection with their beneficial ownership of the COMMON STOCK of CHINA
