Stronger governance in Fiji
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.
