In view of the objectives and new disclosure approach set out in the MCCG, Bursa Malaysia has aligned the Listing Requirements (LR) and the CG Guide to reflect and guide listed issuers on the new CG application, disclosure approaches and reporting requirements.
This one day programme is to provide an in-depth guidance on the application, disclosure and reporting expectations for listed issuers as set out under the new MCCG for Principles A, B and C as further outlined in Bursa Malaysia’s LR and CG Guide.
