RELATIONSHIP WITH AUDITORS

With the Internal Audit

The Group has outsourced the internal audit function to an independent service provider and reports directly to the Audit Committee. The Group’s Internal Audit performs its functions with impartiality, proficiency and due professional care. It undertakes regular monitoring of the Group’s key controls and procedures, which is an integral part of the Group’s system of internal control. The Group’s Internal Audit also determines the company’s level of risk tolerance and actively identifies, assess and monitor key business risks to safeguard shareholders’ investments and company’s assets.

Draft audit reports prepared by the Internal Audit are first circulated to the management i.e. the heads of departments for deliberation before necessary corrective actions are adopted by the management.
