With regard to the Board of Directors’ effectiveness, on this occasion, it is how we Audit & Supervisory Board members see it, but the number of Shinsei Bank directors totals seven, five of whom are outside directors. Many austere opinions are gathered from outside directors at each Board of Directors’ meeting. On the other hand, opinions and counterarguments are also expressed from the executive side, and, as a result of the debates there, some conclusions are made and some involve homework. Looking at such a Board of Directors, I believe that the Bank’s Board of Directors is one in which governance is sufficiently effective. For that reason, however, it takes time to debate items with each and every one of us, and each time the Board of Directors’ meetings are by no means easy to bring to a close. As you would expect, there is much to discuss when debating, and I think it is important to undertake unambiguous Board of Directors’ meeting management that as far as possible simplifies areas that can be simply brought to a conclusion.
