We are able to offer great economic opportunities not only to our workforce but also to the overall ecosystem of businesses and communities that benefit from our operations. These communities and businesses are able to grow and become the engine of social and economic development with their own right as a result of our growth.
Our suppliers play an important role in our success, providing us the necessary goods and services for us to operate and serve our customers. We have built a strong partnership with our current 300 vendors. From this vendor group, we are building and nurturing 18 vendors under the Bumiputera Vendor Development Program, which is also part of our bonds under the Concession Agreement (CA). The program aims to assist Bumiputera manufacturers and strengthen their standards and capabilities to enable them to compete in international markets.
