We are an independent not-for-profit company that is not controlled by any particular shareholder, and instead, all directors are the central figures in our corporate governance system. There is a clear division of responsibilities between the Board of Directors and the executive management. Our Board which currently consists of 6 non-executive directors with diverse professional and academic backgrounds meeting once every quarter collectively provides us with a well-balanced, effective and strategic leadership. The Chief Executive, who is accountable to the Board, is responsible for implementing the Board's decisions in business objectives, operational and financial targets, and performance goals and standards in an effective and efficient manner.
We also believe business success cannot do without good ethics and high governance standard. To ensure the professional competence and high ethical standards of our staff, a Code of Conduct has been incorporated into the Staff Handbook, which all staff members are required to observe it strictly.
