This initiative aims to enhance the governance and oversight of SOEs by appointing highly qualified individuals to the Accounting and Finance positions on their Boards of Directors.

Responsibilities and Duties

The main responsibilities and duties of the appointed directors will align with the stipulations of the Company Act, the Articles of Association of the respective companies, and the Corporate Governance Code. These roles come with significant responsibilities and liabilities, ensuring that the appointed directors uphold the highest standards of corporate governance and contribute effectively to the strategic direction and oversight of SOEs.
