The Transformation of Business to Spur Economic Growth
It is very important that transformation, including gender transformation, is not taking place without some kind of a role model, be it international or domestic. In terms of gender equality and diversity, representation of women among business leaders, representation on the directors’ board and in senior management of companies is very important.

But in fact, it is a rather sad result, because over the last ten years a lot of companies became public, and other markets would show a much greater result. <...> The impact of international sanctions on the capital market cannot go unnoticed.
