The cover of the NWD FY2010 annual report uses "New World Group" in American Sign Language Alphabet as the main  visual.  The sign language images  appearing throughout the annual report represent the Group's sincerity  in serving the public, its commitment in strengthening the two-way communication  and understanding with people from all walks of life, just as the all-rounded  businesses of the Group covering various aspects of lives of the general  public. To match with the Group's 40th anniversary of establishment, all cover  images of previous NWD annual reports are showcased in the interior, memorizing  the Group's 40 years of  development in tandem with our people.

The main visual on the cover of the NWCL FY2010 annual report comprises  four characters in Chinese small seal script, "Home.Business.Happiness.Leisure", creating a  classical and artistic look. These four characters, together with four visuals  of "the screen", "the abacus", "the guqin" and "the tea cup" which symbolize  NWCL's dedication to creating quality communities for "living", "working",  "culture and entertainment" and "leisure" are used in the four dividers of the  annual report, signifying the brand-new life experiences for its customers. The  seal and the classical titles displayed in the interior not only represent the accuracy  of the financial results of NWCL, but also enhance the aesthetic style of the  annual report.

With the tagline "Scaling New Heights",  NWS FY2010 Annual Report demonstrates that NWS is committed to fulfilling  long-term growth and excelling itself at various aspects. On the basis of two  core businesses of NWS, infrastructure and services, its investments span Hong  Kong and Mainland China  are symbolized by puzzles in their respective identity colours, red and orange,  in the report. Also, further expansion of NWS is denoted by adjoining right  pieces of jigsaw puzzle strategically. By focusing on the vibrant growth areas,  NWS has been maximizing its returns and reaching new heights ever since.

The cover of the NWDS FY2010 annual report shows a happy scene of a  family going shopping in a department  store, comprising colorful  graphics with gold powder toppings, flying butterflies and trendy merchandises, which represent the  refreshing and care-free shopping experiences brought by NWDS.
