National Integrity Convention

Several researchers from the Accounting Research Institute (ARI) attended the one-day National Integrity Convention held at the Malaysian Institute of Integrity (IIM) today. "Corporate Integrity and Governance" is one of the four important research clusters carried out by ARI researchers for its HICoE research niche in Islamic Financial Criminology.  With the theme "Integrity: Current Challenges", the event's opening ceremony was graced by the Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Senator Datuk Paul Low Seng Kuan.  The annual convention is indeed an important platform for stakeholders to both ask questions and to find answers and solutions to some of the issues and challenges faced by organisations in promoting integrity at workplaces and in inculcating civil society. The National Integrity Convention 2015 highlights six key challenges:  (i) Public Service Delivery System, (ii) The Role of the Integrity and Governance Committee (PRECISION), (iii) Compliance With Rules and Regulations, (iv) Family Relations, (v) Social Media and (vi)  Public Administration.
