As for the governance division, the Governance Committee is established as a voluntary advisory body to the Board of Directors. This committee deliberates and reports to the Board of Directors on issues of medium- to long-term importance, including the Group's corporate and group governance structure, with the perspectives of outside directors. Furthermore, the committee convenes to strengthen cooperation among the Representative Director, Outside Directors, and Audit & Supervisory Board Members, and to promote the Group's sustainable growth and enhance its social value (corporate value and public value).
