One of the approach is annual general meeting where management of the company, board of directors and shareholder come together to deliberate on the performance of the company, discuss important issues affecting the company and propose future undertaking that helps the company grow. Some of the important issues addressed in the meeting include strengthening compliance, development and operating health research centers around the globe.
