Role of the Board
The Board has ultimate responsibility for the strategic direction of Fliway and for supervising Fliway’s management for the benefit of its Shareholders. The Board’s responsibilities include setting and overseeing the execution of Fliway’s strategy, and supervising management in the operations of Fliway’s business. The Board has adopted a charter recording its commitment to best corporate governance practices (the Board Charter). The Board Charter describes the specific responsibilities, values, principles and practices that underpin the role of Directors on the Board. The Board Charter does not attempt to provide a complete record of all of the formal and informal rules associated with the role of the Board and should be read in conjunction with the Constitution and relevant laws, regulations, codes and guidelines. The Board currently plans to meet not less than six times during the financial year, including meetings to consider Fliway’s strategic direction and business plans.
