KUALA LUMPUR - The Human Resource Development Corporation (HRD Corp) in collaboration with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) launches the National Anti-Corruption (NAC) Summit 2024, today.

Themed "Embedding Integrity and Good Governance in Human Capital Development", the summit aimed to equip organisations with comprehensive strategies to combat corruption, promote ethical business practices and establish robust governance frameworks.

The summit featured three insightful sessions namely Mitigating Risk and Ensuring Accountability: Exploring Corporate Liability in the Modern Era; Navigating the Ethics Maze: Addressing Conflict of Interest in Professional Settings; and Fostering Integrity: Ethical Leadership and Responsible Decision-Making.

It was attended by over 1,300 participants including training providers, employers as well as those from industry associations and government agencies.

During the event, HRD Corp received the Anti-Bribery Management System (ABMS) certification presented by Sirim Bhd chairman Datuk Ir. (Dr.) Khairol Anuar Mohamad Tawi.

This certification acknowledged HRD Corp's adherence to universal requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and improving its anti-bribery management system, highlighting its commitment to enhancing organisational efficiency and corporate governance standards.

The summit also witnessed the formalisation of a long-term collaboration between HRD Corp and MACC through the Corporate Integrity Development Programme (CIDP).
