The Remuneration Committee is entrusted with the role of determining and recommending suitable policies in respect of remuneration packages for Executive Directors and Senior Management of the Group to ensure that rewards commensurate with their experience and individual performance. The Remuneration Committee consists of three (3) Independent Non-Executive Directors.

The Non-Executive Directors are paid monthly fees. The Board as a whole determines the remuneration of Non-Executive Directors based on experience and level of responsibility undertaken. Each individual Director abstains from discussion pertaining to his own remuneration. Directors' fees are approved at the AGM.

Audit Committee

The Board is responsible for ensuring that financial statements prepared for each financial year give a true and fair view of the Group's state of affairs. Quarterly financial results and annual financial statements are reviewed and deliberated upon by the Audit Committee to ensure the quality of the financial reporting and adequacy of such information, prior to submission to the Board for its approval. The Audit Committee also reviews the appropriateness of the Company's accounting policies and the changes to these policies.

The Board has established a formal, transparent and appropriate relationship with the Group's auditors, both external and internal, through the Audit Committee. The Audit Committee meets regularly with the External and Internal Auditors to discuss and review the audit plan, quarterly financial results, annual financial statements and audit findings, and makes recommendations for the Board's approval. During the year, the Audit Committee has also met with the External Auditors without the presence of the Executive Directors and Management.

During the financial year under review, the outsourced Internal Audit function conducted internal audit reviews in accordance with the internal audit plan approved by the Audit Committee. Based on the internal audit reviews conducted, no significant weaknesses identified have resulted in material losses, contingencies or uncertainties requiring separate disclosure in the Annual Report.

The External Auditors also provide assurance in the form of their annual statutory audit of the financial statements of the Group. Significant areas of audit and areas for improvement identified during the course of the statutory audit were highlighted to the Audit Committee's attention through Audit Review Memorandum, or were articulated at Audit Committee meetings.

Risk Management Committee

The Board acknowledges its responsibility for the Group's system of internal controls and risk management as well as for reviewing the effectiveness of these systems. Such systems are designated to manage rather than eliminate the risk of failure to achieve the Group's business objectives.

Option Committee

At an Extraordinary General Meeting held on 16 December 2010, the Company obtained approval from its shareholders on the termination of the ESOS and the establishment of new ESOS ("New ESOS") for eligible employees and directors (including non-executive directors) of the Group ("Eligible Persons"), which is effective on 4 March 2011 and will expire on 3 March 2016. The New ESOS is administered by the ESOS Committee and governed by the New ESOS Bylaws. No options have been granted under the New ESOS at the end of the financial year.

Directors' Training

To enhance their skills and knowledge, and to keep abreast with the relevant changes in laws, regulations and business environment, in order to discharge their duties more effectively, Board members were attended various trainings during the financial year ended 31 December 2011.

Investor Relations

The Group communicates regularly with shareholders and investors through the Annual Report, quarterly financial reports, and various announcements made through the Group's Corporate Website.
