Since we reported our full year 2019 results, the Covid-19 pandemic has had a major impact on people’s lives and weakened the global economic outlook. Our primary focus is on supporting our customers, colleagues and the communities where we operate, and we have implemented contingency plans to mitigate the impact on our people and operations as far as possible. The company is in a strong position as a market leader in the countries where we operate and with a strong balance sheet and adequate liquidity. Although at this stage it is still too early to quantify the impact due to the Covid-19 outbreak on our full year 2020 results, we are monitoring the situation closely and will update the market in due course.
