With the aim of executing public tasks, the government has strengthened the operational flexibility of NDPB through relaxation of laws and regulations and has adopted the board of directors as an internal governance unit, is responsible for the decision-making process of major matters of NDPB. Hence the board of directors has huge impacts on the operation of NDPB. Past research on NDPB has been carried out intensively into the legal system or the current state of operation instead of corporate governance. Therefore, this study focuses on the organizational characteristics and functional attributes of NDPB’s board of directors.
