Corporate Governance

          The long-term corporate culture of “Integrity, Honesty, Diligence, and Frugality” represents the invariable corporate spirit of CPT. In 2014, CPT continued to
   promote the new six core values and accountability management to gradually build a culture of accountability. As far as laws and regulations are concerned, CPT
   insists on compliance with the Company Act, Securities and Exchange Act, Commercial Account Law, regulations governing listed companies, and laws and decrees
   governing other forms of commercial conduct. In addition, CPT maintains a neutral stance on public policies and refrains from financial and material political
   contributions as a foundation for the implementation of business integrity.
