Also in the coming year, a new 6th element of the standard will be introduced - an investor feedback mechanism. We have already started this work: a special red button is posted on the investment portal. It is linked to the “People's Control” system, where a new category “Investor Questions” is created. We have developed a rubricator of questions, and responsible persons have been appointed throughout the republic. Centralized training has already taken place in December.”
