Synergies flow from a tight geographic focus.
Why focus? Synergies result from operating in a relatively small geographic area. Focus allows us to gain a better understanding of the culture and politics of where we operate. It allows us to reduce travel costs, to develop our materials, systems and procedures in a single language, and to share personnel. It also allows us to share concepts, best practices, products and staff. In time, operating in several countries will provide an element of sovereign and commercial risk reduction.
