RISK MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

 
 
      The Audit Committee's function already includes the assessment and management of enterprise risks.  As provided for in Section 16.3 of Code of Corporate Governance for the GOCC sector, it does not preclude the Governing Board of the GOCC from combining the functions of the committees into such combinations that will best serve the interest of the GOCC.

Financial Risk

 
 
      The Corporation's principal financial instruments comprise of cash and cash equivalents, restructured debt and advances to and from related parties.  The main purpose of these financial instruments is to finance the Corporation's operations.  The Corporation has various other financial assets and liabilities such as receivables and vouchers payable and accrued expenses (excluding statutory payables), which arise directly from its operations.  The main risks arising from the Corporation's financial instruments are credit risk and liquidity risk.  The Corporation's Board of Directors (BOD) and Management review and approve the policies for managing each of this risk.
