PFC was bestowed with this coveted award for its highest level of transparency in accounting practices and for achieving excellence in the presentation and disclosure of high-quality, relevant, reliable and objective financial statements in accordance with the international framework.

The financials of PFC competed against entries from entire South Asian Companies and was ultimately declared the winner by the jury.
