Risk management is regarded by the Board as an important aspect of the Group’s diverse and growing operations with

the objective of maintaining a sound internal control system. To this end, the Group has established the appropriate risk

management infrastructure to ensure that the Group’s assets are well-protected and shareholders’ value enhanced.

The Audit Committee and the Board is supported by a Risk Management Committee (“RMC”). The RMC identifies and

communicates to the Audit Committee and the Board the present and potential critical risks the Group faces, their changes

and the Management action plans to manage these risks. The RMC convenes meeting on a yearly basis to review the key risk

profiles and submit a summary reporting to the Audit Committee. The RMC is entrusted with the responsibility of implementing

and maintaining the ERM framework to achieve the following objectives:

communicate the vision, role, direction and priorities to all employees and key stakeholders;

identify, assess, treat, report and monitor significant risks in an effective manner;

enable systematic risk review and reporting on key risks, existing control measures and any proposed action plans; and

create a risk-aware culture and building the necessary knowledge for risk management at every level of Management.
