Corporate Governance Symposium

Congratulations are in order for the successful joint-organization of a recent Corporate Governance Symposium by the Malaysian Institute of Corporate Governance (MICG) and Malaysian Institute of Accountants (MIA). 
 The Accounting Research Institute (ARI) was also invited to co-organize the one-day event held at the Nexus Connection Convention Centre in Kuala Lumpur.  Themed "Driving Public-Private Governance Forward", the symposium showcased three forums, two keynote speeches and a special presentation.  YB Senator Datuk Paul Low Seng Kuan officially graced open the symposium.  For the purpose of building strong links between the public and private sectors, a robust public-private collaboration is imperative given the crucial roles that these two sectors play in upholding good governance practices for Malaysia.
Importantly, this symposium also aimed to leverage on public-private partnerships to augment scarce resources and talent, while building capacity and competency in governance-related areas, e.g. accounting education and research.  Participants would gain awareness of current developments in the governance of public and private sectors, and benefit from developing wide networks with other governance specialists and thought leaders.  Given the current global emphasis on good governance, the symposium was especially timely in providing a common platform for practitioners, academia, policy makers and implementers to engage in intellectual discourse with the primary goal of enhancing understanding on the subject of governance.  ARI from Universiti Teknologi MARA was represented by 10 fellows and post graduate students at the symposium.
