“Knowing the difference the BICG has made in advancing good governance practices in the Baltics, I am looking forward to making sure that we both safeguard these achievements and build on them for further improvements. I am proud of the BICG mission and the vision we are heading towards. The Board of the BICG works according to the best professional standards and that’s what we all want to see in private and state-owned enterprises. It is a true honor and responsibility to take over the position of the Chair,” says Ms Kapčinskienė.
