I congratulate PESABAZAAR.com for winning this Year's award on "Best Innovative Company of the Year" that was also aligned with our theme "Innovation for Growth”. This was after fierce competition from other entrants that had equally better chances of winning.
We hope that this will encourage them to work harder in "Innovation for Growth" and that they’ll scoop the ward again next year.
