admirably through the last few years when we were going through a low growth phase in the

in the past few years will continue to give sustainable advantage to ACC.”

the Indian market which is on the threshold of rapid growth. I thank the ACC Parivar and the

company’s leadership team for giving me their unstinted support and trust.”
