A Q&A session will complete this interactive opportunity for clarifying any doubts on the issue, which will help in the pursuit of even greater transparency between companies and their investors. "The webinar will strengthen the commitment of business leaders in the IR area to ensuring the clarity of information," declared Rodrigo Alves.
