We are facing two significant challenges, first of which is to maintain what we have achieved and redouble efforts in quality and quantity. Moreover, we will continue at a faster pace, maintain quality and excellence in order to achieve the community’s objectives, and enhance the concept of social responsibility up to the level of the strategic concept.”
