Belgian KBC Group has announced it will buy MetLife's 40% stake in Bulgaria-registered life insurance partnership UBB-MetLife Life Insurance Company, thus becoming a full owner of the firm.

By integrating SVM and IK with KBC, we will bring together deep and rich business, process, and operational domain knowledge across the energy and chemicals sectors, and will connect this with the cloud-based, real-time representation of plant, business, and supply chain operations to identify and implement solutions that will sustain and continuously improve performance.

During their second visit, they were introduced to the KBC and continued their research by working on their works cited.
Clearly the KBC had been the impetus for their "one-stop shopping" research experience.
I was delighted to find that by creating KBC wild pages, our students can gain knowledge from reliable sources.
