The role of the Board is to determine overall policies, plans and strategies of the Group and to ensure that these are implemented in an ethical and professional manner. The Board meets regularly, at least four times a year, and guides corporate strategy, risk management practices, annual budgets and business plans.
Special Board meetings may be convened on an ad-hoc basis when necessary to consider issues requiring urgent attention or decision. The Company Secretary maintains an attendance register of Directors for all scheduled meetings during the year through which Directors can assess their devotion of sufficient time to the Group.
The Board has overall responsibility for ensuring the integrity of the Group’s accounting and financial reporting systems including the independent audit, and that appropriate systems of control, risk management and compliance with laws are in place.
