The system ensures that the management takes into account the shareholders and stakeholders interest when formulating any strategies or make any decisions that will affect the Company.
The Company implements guidelines, policies, manuals and other technical regulations systematically and takes into account shareholders and stakeholders interest in its decision-making process.

Therefore, it enables the management to make decisions that prioritise the Companys interest without any pressure from any parties which are not in line with the prevailing laws and regulations as well as the principles of a well-managed Company.
Each part of the Company operates independently without any domineering presence from other units and intervention from other parties. All decisions are made professionally and objectively that acknowledge all business units and free from any conflict of interest.
