1. Related-party information, including names and tax identification numbers for Thai entities, country of incorporation for foreign entities, and whether each related party has transactions with the filing entity.

2. Information regarding any related party transactions,4 including the names of the counterparties, the amounts of the transactions classified into operating revenue,5 other income, purchases of raw materials/goods, acquisition of land, buildings and equipment, other expenses (further classified into royalty/management fee/technical service fee/commission fee, interest expense, and other expenses), and balances of loans receivable and payable as of the fiscal year end.

3. Other declarations include whether:
