Officially launching the website, Board of Trustees' Chairman Rapula Okaile said communication remains a core amongst the BPOPF board of trustees' fiduciary obligations, hence the website's role could not be overemphasised."Therefore, it makes it imperative for a continuous review of the standard of business and communication to accord universal access to company information to everyone across the globe, " explained Okaile.
