Code of Ethics

 

A Director of the Company should at all times observe the following Code in the performance of his duties :-

 

A)          Conflicts of Interest

Followings are some of the examples set forth in the Code which could be developed as conflicts of interest :-

 

          i)          Receiving personal benefits from persons or entities which are seeking to do business or to retain                       business with the Group;

 

          ii)         Accepting offers or gifts from persons or entities that deal with the Group, in cases where such                       offers or gifts received will influence the Directors’ decisions within the Board; and
