          Corporate governance system

          Our corporate governance system has evolved over the years and is focused on creating value in the medium to long term.

          In 2014, we took a further step forward in bringing our governance in line with international best practices, to make governance of our company more efficient and effective overtime. We began the process in 2012 and intend to continue down this road.
