KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, 3 Juni, 2016 /Bernama-AsiaNet/ —

Malaysian Directors Academy (MINDA) memperluas perannya sebagai lembaga yang
melahirkan direktur di Malaysia. Hal ini diumumkan oleh YB Datuk Johari Abdul
Ghani, Second Deputy Minister of Finance, Malaysia.

Datuk Johari, dalam pidatonya berkata “Dalam kurun waktu sepuluh tahun sejak
didirikan, MINDA terus berevolusi dari yang semula mengembangkan direktur
government-linked companies (GLCs) menjadi lembaga direktur Malaysia. Para
direktur perusahaan yang berbekal pengetahuan dan keterampilan serta dewan
direksi yang efisien merupakan bagian yang tak terpisahkan dalam upaya
transformasi negeri jiran ini menjadi negara maju dan berpenghasilan tinggi.
Hal ini menandai prestasi penting bagi MINDA karena lembaga tersebut
meluncurkan MINDA 2.0 – sebagai lembaga yang melahirkan direktur di Malaysia.
MINDA 2.0 bertujuan untuk lebih mengatur profesionalisme dan tata kelola
perusahaan yang baik di antara direktur perusahaan di Malaysia”.

Datuk Johari menambahkan, “Saya yakin bahwa MINDA, sebagai badan independen
dan kustodian Green Book, amatlah pas sebagai lembaga direktur Malaysia. Peran
ini akan mencakup penyampai kebijakan dan pedoman peraturan kepada direktur
perusahaan; menetapkan standar bagi direktur; mempromosikan pengembangan
terus-menerus dan efektivitas direktur; melakukan riset dan advokasi di bidang
tata kelola perusahaan yang baik; serta membangun database direktur yang mampu
memfasilitasi pemilihan direktur baru”, lanjutnya.

Pada peluncuran ini, ditandatangani pula MoU antara MINDA dan Australian
Institute of Company Directors (AICD), Indonesian Institute for Corporate
Directorship (IICD) serta The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka
(CA Sri Lanka). Inisiatif kolaborasi ini meliputi riset dan advokasi mengenai
praktik terbaik efektivitas dewan direksi, pengadaan direktur, pengembangan
kasus, tugas-tugas konsultasi, pengembangan program bersama dan promosi.

Dengan menggandeng AICD, MINDA akan menggelar International Foundations of
Directorship Course (IFOD) pada 15-17 Agustus 2016 di Perth, Australia. “IFOD
melengkapi program direktur kami seiring dengan kian banyaknya perusahaan lokal
Malaysia yang berekspansi ke luar negeri. Terdapat isu, tantangan dan praktik
terkait yang timbul dari berbagai rejim pengatur, batasan budaya dan sosial
serta kerangka hukum dan persyaratan kepatuhan. Sebagai direktur organisasi
internasional, mereka harus tahu cara menangani isu-isu seperti keragaman
direktur, implikasi budaya dan praktik terbaik kinerja”, ujar Dato’ Abdul Aziz
Abu Bakar, Executive Director MINDA.

Event ini dihadiri oleh para preskom dan direktur perusahaan, regulator,
pemangku kepentingan serta pakar yang menaruh minat besar dalam pengembangan
dewan direksi dan direktur di Malaysia.

MINDA didirikan pada 2006 untuk meningkatkan efektivitas dewan direksi
menurut Green Book’s Initiative 2 on Strengthening Directors Capabilities of
Government-Linked Companies (GLC) Transformation (GLCT) Programme. Sejak 2012,
MINDA telah membuka peluang bagi seluruh direktur perusahaan Malaysia mulai
dari perusahaan publik hingga sektor swasta dan UKM guna meningkatkan
efektivitas direktur dan dewan direksi dalam mengupayakan tata kelola
perusahaan yang baik di negeri jiran tersebut.

Launch of MINDA 2.0

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, June 3, 2016 (Antara/Bernama-AsiaNet) —

The Malaysian Directors Academy (MINDA) launched its expanded role to be the institute of director for Malaysia. The launch was officiated by YB Datuk Johari Abdul Ghani, Second Deputy Minister of Finance, Malaysia.

Datuk Johari, in his keynote address said “In the ten years since its inception, MINDA has continued to evolve from initially dealing with development of directors of government-linked companies (GLCs) to becoming the institute of directors for Malaysia. Company directors equipped with the knowledge and skills and effective boards are integral to the nation’s transformation into a developed and high-income economy. This marks an important achievement for MINDA as it celebrates the launch of MINDA 2.0 – to be the institute of directors for Malaysia. The aim of MINDA 2.0 is to further steer professionalism and good corporate governance among company directors in Malaysia”.

He further added, “I am confident that MINDA, as an independent body and the custodian of the Green Book, is best positioned to be the institute of directors for Malaysia. This role would include acting as the sounding board for company directors on policies and regulatory guidelines; setting the standards for directors; promoting continuous development and effectiveness of directors; conducting research and advocacy in good corporate governance; and building a database on capable directors to facilitate selection of new directors for boards”, continued Datuk Johari.

The launch witnessed the MoU signing ceremony between MINDA and Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD), Indonesian Institute for Corporate Directorship (IICD) as well as The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka (CA Sri Lanka). The collaboration initiatives cover research and advocacy work on board effectiveness best practices, directors sourcing, case development, consulting assignments, joint programme development and promotions.

MINDA in partnership with AICD, will host the International Foundations of Directorship Course (IFOD) on 15-17 August 2016 in Perth, Australia. “IFOD is a timely add on to our director programme as more and more of our local businesses are venturing abroad. There are pertinent issues, challenges and practices arising from diverse regulatory regime, cultural and social borders as well as legal frameworks and compliance requirements. As directors of international organisations, they need to know how to manage issues such as director diversity, cultural implications and performance best practice’, said Dato’ Abdul Aziz Abu Bakar, Executive Director of MINDA.

The event was attended by company chairmen and directors, regulators, stakeholders and subject-matter-experts who share deep interest in the development of board and directors in Malaysia.

MINDA was first established in 2006 to enhance board effectiveness under Green Book’s Initiative 2 on Strengthening Directors Capabilities of Government-Linked Companies (GLC) Transformation (GLCT) Programme. Since 2012, MINDA has opened its door to all Malaysian corporate directors from public listed companies to private sector and SMEs to enhance director and board effectiveness in pursuit of good corporate governance in the country.
