Managing Corporate Governance in Asia
The Effects of Corruption in Asia to be discussed by corporate decision makers at Bali Conference on April 7 and 8, 2005

200 CEO's and senior executives from corporations and governments around Asia will gather in Bali this April to discuss the positive business results that can be obtained when a company embraces anticorruption strategies and find ways how Government, Corporations, Media and the Judiciary can cooperate in the fight against corruption.

On April 7-8, the third annual Managing Corporate Governance in Asia Conference will be held in Bali with the theme "Corruption in Asia - Its effect on Business and Nations". Business and political leaders, as well as high-ranking experts from international organizations and NGO's from all over the world will provide their viewpoints and expertise of the negative effects of corruption and how to minimize its occurrence.

Mr. George Tahija, President/Director of PT. Austindo Nusantara Jaya will co-chair the MCGA with Mr. Jose L. Cuisia, Jr., President and CEO of Philippine American Life and General Insurance Company. The Conference is organized by the C.V. Starr Chair in Corporate Governance in Asia which is endowed by AIG, the Asian Institute of Management - Ramon V. del Rosario, Sr. (AIM-RVR) Center for Corporate Responsibility and the AIM-Hills Governance Center.

"It is time for companies to have a better understanding of how corruption negatively impacts the growth and development of national economies. Corporate decision makers in Asia need to learn to succeed in business without engaging in corrupt practices." said Tahija.

October 2003 - One year after the bomb

First there was the horror itself, which on 12 October 2002 exploded over what many people thought was the least likely place on earth for anything horrible to occur.

Bali—the Island of Gods—was supposed to be a place somehow removed from the harsh realities of the rest of the world.

This silly idea was replaced by another silly idea, much touted in the Western press, that Bali had ‘lost its innocence’—whereas in fact what Bali had lost was its livelihood. The tourism industry evaporated overnight.
