For the first time ever, over two-hundred business directors will participate in the Pacific Governance Summit.
The Summit is aimed at improving and promoting governance.
Pacific Corporate Governance Institute Chairman, Nouzab Fareed says governance is fairly established in listed companies, however, there is a need to promote this in other companies.
Fareed says governance involve transparency, accountability and diversity and responsible discharge of directors duty
Fareed says fifteen local experienced directors will be part of the panel discussion.
He says the speakers will share their knowledge as to how to attract investors and manage conflicts.
“Experienced directors will speak on the breaches they have seen. Fiji has seen a lot of breaches of governance historically over last ten to twenty years, so some of these things need to be shared so everybody learns what is right, what is wrong and how we need to avoid the situation like that.”
The summit will be held next month at the Grand Pacific Hotel in Suva.
