With working experience in foreign banks for many years and has served as a director or general manager in other listed companies, Ms. Li Yi-li shall provide us more innovative and young concepts and rigorous risk management suggestions derived from working in the foreign bank. In response to the Company's business development, the Company shall aim at the “directors with backgrounds and hands-on experiences accumulated in real property development-oriented industries or recreational tourism industry in the Board of Directors of the 14th Session”.For more information about the diversification policy of members of the board of directors, please refer to the Company annual report.

Director Training Status

Selections of the members to the Board of Directors seats

Here at Sinyi Realty Inc., we started the perspective of corporate governance and entrepreneurial heritage quite many years ago. We introduced an independent director system as early as 2004. We set up the Audit Committee in 2007, established the Remuneration Committee in 2009. In 2013, the number of Sinyi’s independent directors was four, in excess of half of the total number of board of directors seats at seven (7). In very early years, we set the sound system that the tenure of office of independent directors should not exceed nine (9) years in maximum to prevent potential damage to the independence. Furthermore, the Nominating Committee was established in 2017 to help the Sinyi Group in checking and verifying the professional backgrounds of the director nominees (such as law, accounting, industry-related knowledge, finance, marketing, or technology) as well as professional expertise (e.g. operational judgment ability; accounting and financial analysis ability; management ability; crisis processing capacity; industry knowledge; the comprehensive of international market; leadership; decision-making ability). That Committee further helps us check and verify the qualification requirements for senior executives in their promotion. Many practices had been virtually carried out by Sinyi Group before requirements by the government authorities. Through such sound practice, we have significantly optimized the performance of the Board of Directors.

In addition to professional backgrounds and professional expertise, the Company's board of directors members should further possess the expertise required by the Company's business planning and business undertakings. To help the Board of Directors members enhance the professionalism and continuous improvement, given the scope beyond the professional capabilities of the directors to choose and cover such professional courses in finance, risk management, business, commerce, legal affairs, accounting, corporate social responsibility, or internal control systems related to the nature of the company's business undertakings, we arrange and required each and every Board of Directors member to receive and complete at least six (6) hours of refresher and advanced study every year. Thanks to such sound planning and system, all board of directors members will keep themselves abreast of the up-to-date know-how required for the industry.

Here at Sinyi Group, we launched the chairperson succession plan quite many years ago, cultivating the Company's internal senior executives to enter the Board of Directors and familiarize them with the operation of the board of directors. Besides, routinely, we have tried to expand their participation in the operating units of the Group, and experience in job rotation, assignment, and the like. Finally, after the full re-election of the Board of Directors members in May 2019, exactly in the same month, Chairperson Chou Chun-Chi successfully handed over his chairmanship to Mr. Hsueh Chien-Ping, the former General Manager and Vice-Chairperson of the Company. Former Chairperson Chou Chun-Chi, who is the very founder of Sinyi Group, currently serves as the Company's director. The Company shall plan to set up the talent pool of independent directors in 2021 to select the appropriate candidates in the future.
