A winner never condescends, but lifts those around to a higher mentality. In this vein, I hope that the Federation Of Public Listed Companies (FPLC) will be able to play its part to lift our members towards greater heights in its professionalism and competitiveness towards world class listed companies.The Executive Committee is not daunted with the limited resources in the Secretariat. We look forward to the focus on the end results and refuse to be intimidated by the past that held us back and the future uncertainty in the marketplace amidst global challenges.Probably the adage that adversity is breeding ground for miracles is now put to test for each of us in the corporate arena be it as captains of industry or new players in the corporate landscape.I am glad to inform FPLC members that we are now in panel of important dialogues that deal with issues affecting FPLC members. We are now not only in working groups for the Malaysia Accounting Standards Board (MASB), Bursa Malaysia Berhad (BMB) and Securities Commission (SC) dialogue(s), we are also in dialogues with many other regulatory bodies as seen on our consultative participations page.The Federation also has identified several programmes in the form of conferences, seminars, on-site environment CEP Directors programmes, trade missions and networking events in line with its mission statement - "To Boost Professionalism And Competitiveness Of Malaysian Listed Companies Towards World Class Listed Companies" to facilitate FPLC members towards achieving that direction.FPLC's presence is stronger than ever today compared to yesteryears. We have to thank all our members who have been with us since all these years without which we would not be where we are today. I am glad that FPLC members have won several national awards, and FPLC proudly celebrates and profile their achievements. By belonging to an industry group and giving your support to FPLC, FPLC could not but only to continuously hope to serve you better.
