Kuala Lumpur, 28 March 2001

The Advisory Council was identified in the Masterplan as a key element of the implementation process. It is expected to advise the SC on, among other things, the developments in global and domestic capital markets and their potential implications for Malaysia, and to provide independent views on the progress of implementation of the Masterplan. The Masterplan was launched by the Minister of Finance, Tun Daim Zainuddin last month.

The Advisory Council will also be involved in efforts to promote and facilitate smooth implementation of the Masterplan, and to advise on areas where further enhancements may be required to reflect evolving market developments.

The establishment of the Advisory Council reflects the SC's continuing efforts to ensure that a consultative and collaborative approach is taken in the Masterplan's implementation," said the SC Chairman, Encik Ali Abdul Kadir.

Fifteen members from the capital market industry, comprising senior domestic and foreign capital market participants and specialists providing representation over a spectrum of capital market activities, have been appointed.
