The Aus­tralian In­sti­tute of Com­pany Direc­tors (AICD) is com­mit­ted to strength­en­ing so­ci­ety through world­class gov­er­nance.

For many years, the AICD has worked with boards and in­di­vid­u­als in Fiji to strengthen the gov­er­nance of their or­gan­i­sa­tions. The AICD will re­turn and be in Fiji from July 16 to 18 to dis­cuss how the AICD can play a role in this jour­ney. AICD Head of In­ter­na­tional, Ed­ward Palmisano, said: “Fiji has a strong com­mit­ment to gov­er­nance and there’s a recog­ni­tion that good gov­er­nance im­proves cul­ture, in­creases ac­cess to fi­nance, re­duces risk and im­proves fi­nan­cial per­for­mance.

“I will meet with lead­ers across Gov­ern­ment, pub­lic, pri­vate and not-for-profit sec­tors.” Mr Palmisano made a sim­i­lar trip to Suva and Nadi in Fe­bru­ary.

“There’s a fo­cus on board di­ver­sity, espe­cially in­creas­ing women on boards.

“There are also is­sues around ten­ure, di­rec­tor li­a­bil­ity, man­ag­ing con­flicts of in­ter­est, suc­ces­sion plan­ning and the im­pact of leg­isla­tive changes.”

The AICD will also be de­liv­er­ing the Fiji Direc­tors Course at the Grand Pa­cific Ho­tel in Suva from July 16 to 18.
