Continuous knowledge development of the board members and the executive management has become one of the main pillars of governance, as it provides them with the appropriate knowledge of all the subjects relating to the company’s activities, enhancing its performance and achieving its objectives.

Furthermore, attending such events has become one of the regulatory requirements imposed by the regulatory bodies as mentioned in Capital Market’s Authority’s executive bylaw- Book XV (Corporate Governance)- Chapter 11- Article (3-11).
