Training Program Outline


Theme: Strengthening Risk Oversight by the Board
Presentation I:


The elements of good corporate governance (CG) are introduced.
The pillars of good CG are sound leadership of the Bank, compliance
with regulations, and effective market discipline. The separation
of the Board from management provides a balance in setting
directions and their implementation. Effective risk management
provides the necessary check and balance to the Bank’s pursuit of
its profits and growth goals. Effective market discipline requires
attention to disclosure requirements of investors. Lack of proper
disclosures weakens the confidence of investors. There has been
major progress in promoting good CG but challenges remain. Major
improvements are required for more progress in public disclosure,
search for independent Directors, and in improving the technical
skills of Directors.


The presentation intends to enable the participants to:
• be updated on the current understanding of the pillars of
good CG.
• be introduced to the main criteria for good CG for Banks.
• understand that continuing improvements are called for by
both regulators and investors in the capital market.
At the end of the presentation, participants would have learned the
following lessons:

• Good CG is now a requirement of all Banks. The degree of
investor and stakeholders confidence on the Bank depends on

• As a Director, one should take active leadership to promote
good CG.

• Building skills in such areas as financial reporting and labor
regulations is a requirement for Directors if they are to keep
abreast of developments in good CG.
