It is often said that the Auditor-General’s Report served as the watchdog of the government expenses. However, the question remains as whether is it a formality or is it for accountability. The integrity and transparency of the audit always comes into question. Therefore, Penang Institute and C4 are proud to bring together a panel of speakers comprising of Tan Sri Abu Kassim, MACC Chief Commissioner; Datuk Nur Jazlan, PAC Chairman, YB Steven Sim, Penang Institute Director and a representative from AG Department to discuss further on the competency, accountability and transparency (CAT) of AG’s Report.

Keynote address is to be delivered by YAB Tuan Lim Guan Eng, Chief Minister of Penang.

Admission is FREE and registration is on a first come first serve basis. Kindly register your interest below to secure your seat. We hope to have a lively discussion with you at the event.
