The Board of Commissioners considers that the Board of Directors has carried out their duties and responsibilities very well in 2019.

We consider this result to be ideal since the company’s focus in 2019, which is the marketing of products has recorded satisfactory results according to marketing plans, excepts for high voltage cable types. We understand that the performance of high voltage cable business in 2019 was affected by the external factors, which is outside of the Board of Directors and managements control, such as the changes in Government program related to electricity.
The expansion of high voltage factory is a special achievement for the Company which shows that the Board of Directors has successfully implemented one of the Company’s expansion strategy splendidly.
