SSI believes good corporate governance represents one of the most important factors ensuring corporate sustainable development, thus winning investor confidence and maximizing shareholders’ interest. 
In addition to strict compliance with the Law on corporate governance in Vietnam in general (including the 2014 Enterprise Law, Decree 71/2017/ND-CP, Circular 95/2017/TT-BTC) and regulations specific to listed companies, SSI’s corporate governance is gradually improved in line with the best corporate governance practices in the region and the world such as ASEAN Corporate Governance Scorecard. 
The ASEAN Corporate Governance Scorecard is based on the corporate governance rules of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the legal framework for corporate governance of participating countries, including Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines and Vietnam. Accordingly, corporate governance activities are evaluated comprehensively against 5 dimensions, including: Rights of Shareholders, Equitable Treatment of Shareholders, Role of Stakeholders, Disclosure and Transparency, and Responsibilities of the Board.
In recent years, in benchmarking against the evaluation criteria at this scorecard, SSI has made great efforts in improving its corporate governance, gradually converging good standards in the region. Specifically, SSI performs well in 4 dimensions, namely: Shareholders’ rights (20/21 criteria passed - up one place compared to the self-assessment in 2017), Equitable Treatment of Shareholders (14/15 criteria passed - up one place compared to the self-assessment in 2017), Role of Stakeholders (11/13 criteria passed - up two places compared to the self-assessment in 2017), Disclosure and Transparency (30/32 criteria passed). After Decree 71/2017/ND-CP and Circular 95/2017/TT-BTC guiding corporate governance were issued, SSI actively developed the Internal Regulation on Corporate Governance and submitted it to the GSM for approval and made publicly available in April 2018. This regulation is referenced against international practices on corporate governance, in which there is a detailed regulation of shareholders’ rights, equitable treatment of shareholders in activities, and issues related to members/activities of the BOD/BOS.   
Besides, SSI needs to improve the dimension Responsibility of the Board of Directors to converge good corporate governance practices. In this regard, the Company has a specific roadmap and an action plan to meet the criteria: establishment of subcommittees, evaluation of BOD members and activities of independent BOD members.
