Governance

In the value chain of our business, corporate governance links all parts of the business. Effective and well-targeted policies determine the operational and risk management capabilities, and whether the business can sustain in the long run. Therefore, we emphasize governance performance and improve it by regular monitoring, supervision and policy adjustments. At the same time, we ensure the full implementation of corporate governance by raising the awareness of governance through training and performance indicators.

Since the reform of the internal system implemented earlier, we have further strengthened the management and integration to ensure the consistency of internal information within the company. In addition, we have improved external communication and management and provide a solid foundation for the long-term development of the company by maintaining the stability of the value chain concurrently.
