Seminar: Combating Corruption & Nation-Building


Date: 14 Aug (Sun)
Time: 2.30pm – 4.30pm
Venue: KAOG@Metro, 2-2, Jln Metro Avenue 2, Metro Avenue, 43000 Kajang, Selangor

Corruption as defined by Transparency International is the abuse of entrusted power for personal gains. Many surveys had shown that the level of corruption or the tolerance of it by the society has a direct correlation with the level of economic well being of a nation. Failed states are usually more corrupt than the highly developed nations.
We all want a clean, accountable and efficient government regardless of which political party or parties are in the administration. The Malaysian public has, for too long, tolerated corrupt practices and in many instances such practices have been institutionalised and have become a way of life.

Churches here have been mobilised to be concerned with national building. It is the duty of the church to guide her members to exercise their moral citizenry in a responsible manner in accordance to their faith in matters of justice and good governance. The church is part of the civil society and cannot remain passive or inactive on such matters.

We are honoured to have Datuk Paul Low, the President of Transparency International (Malaysia) to conduct a half-day seminar on matters of corruption, governance and integrity. While Datuk Low involves actively in advocating good governance and combating corruption in the market place, he also serves as an elder in his local church.

We look forward to your presence and partnership in making the Malaysian Church the salt and light in the society.
