GCC institute planning roadshow
Manama, May 16, 2012
The first member roadshow of the GCC Board Directors Institute (BDI) will be held on May 30 in Bahrain under the theme 'Celebrating Five Years of Corporate Governance Excellence in the GCC'.
The roadshow will feature a keynote address by Central Bank of Bahrain Governor Rasheed Al Maraj.
"BDI has greatly achieved what it had set to achieve," remarked BDI founding executive director Dr Abdullah Al Abdulgader.
"During the short five years, we have connected with over 300 members of GCC senior board directors, and we have made tremendous efforts to develop, share and introduce the latest knowledge and best practices in corporate governance to the region," he noted.
"We are now pleased to be on the road to celebrate the many successes of our members, to enhance their engagement in BDI, and share with them our growth plans that will make BDI more resourceful, effective and accessible for them," he added.
On the roadshow, Al Maraj said, "Boards in the GCC have a tremendous will to raise their effectiveness, and BDI has thrived in an effort to bring the classroom into the boardroom."
"While this roadshow is a celebration of the continued corporate governance developments in the region, it is equally a great opportunity to pause to consider where corporate governance will and should be in the next five years," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
