Our Management Approach
The Group supports community development that empowers the disadvantaged and less privileged with opportunities to access health care, education and recreational activities. We support children, disabled, orphans and senior citizens in improving their living conditions. The Group also supports areas of art, culture and sports around the communities we operate as well as supporting animal welfare. Our communities include those within which our employees and their families live as well as where our business operate.
