              (d)   Liquidity and cash flow risks

                   Liquidity and cash flow risks are the risks that the Group and the Company will not be able to meet its financial obligations when
                   they fall due. The Group’s and the Company’s exposure to liquidity risk arises principally from its various payables and borrowings.

                   The Group and the Company seek to ensure all business units maintain optimum levels of liquidity at all times, sufficient for their
                   operating, investing and financing activities.

                   Therefore, the policy seeks to ensure that each business unit, through efficient working capital management (i.e. inventory,
                   accounts receivable and accounts payable management), must be able to convert its current assets into cash to meet all demands
                   for payment as and when they fall due.

                   Owing to the nature of its businesses, the Group and the Company always maintain sufficient credit lines available to meet their
                   liquidity requirements while ensuring an effective working capital management within the Group and the Company.
