Having completed the first chapter of its growth journey, the Group is ready to embark on the next lap of its success, under new leadership and in the hands of a strong team in place.  For this, I am grateful to our shareholder, Temasek, and our Board of Directors for their guidance, support and trust over the years.  I am especially thankful to all my colleagues for the hard work and teamwork that have made our journey a fulfilling and exciting one.”
