With Director and Group CEO, J P Chalasani at the helm, Group operations will strengthen with a focus on project earnings. We will continue to pursue new markets with special focus on MRT and railways. Encouragingly, our project in Libya has recommenced and we have begun to receive some payments. Additionally, we have taken several steps towards making Punj Lloyd a more lean, efficient and responsive organization. I am confident of the macro environment gradually improving and as it does.
