One of the most important values we have is the entrepreneurial spirit, we are taking courageous steps in different geographies of the world and we are entering into challenging markets by which we are not intimidated, and wherever we might be operating we have seen that these markets have embraced us with positivity, and we have also proven our achievements.”
