This Board is the authoritative group responsible for all decision-making regarding the company's operations, in accordance with the Company's Articles of Association, the Companies Act of 2013, and other relevant laws. A board resolution concerning the appointment of directors assigns director(s) to the Company's Board and empowers a specific individual to carry out the necessary filings with the Registrar of Companies.
