Corporate Social Responsibility
The management of the company is aware that the business should be conducted in a sustainable and socially responsible manner. Accordingly, a team has been formed which will regularly suggest and implement positive activities for the benefit of the stakeholders including employees as well as community at large.
Vision and Future Plans
Opening associate offices in other countries, especially the UK and the USA, is in consideration. This, we hope, will help us give a wider platform for the authors partnering with us in development.
