Through the 2016 Annual Report, the Board ofDirectors expressed satisfaction that the Company’s risk management andinternal control operations were fully effective. In the annual report, the companydid not disclose the relevant information on risk management and internalcontrol system in detail and also maintain the internal control system and riskmanagement policy that has been used for the past five years.
