The Securities Industry Development Centre (SIDC), the training and education arm of the Securities Commission is organising a three-day workshop on the equities market from 12-14 March 2002 at the Securities Commission, Kuala Lumpur.

The workshop is part of the SIDC Capital Market Workshop Series which aims to provide investors with a fundamental understanding of the Malaysian capital market.
