This ?will assist in spreading awareness and environment education throughout the ?neighbouring areas."?

He added:” We, at INVESTBANK, consider protecting the environment as part of our ?responsibility in our daily life and future, we look forward to encouraging people, ?especially the young generation on the importance of protecting the environment in ?order to enjoy it."?
