SC launches Capital Market Master Plan website to facilitate public feedback and comment

Kuala Lumpur, 27 October 1999

The Securities Commission (SC) has launched a website to disseminate information and garner public feedback on the Capital Market Master Plan. The Commission is the secretariat to the Capital Market Strategic Committee (CMSC), which has been tasked with overseeing the master plan.

The establishment of the website is in line with the SC's objective to involve industry participation in the formulation of the Capital Market Master Plan.

"Our approach is to have the direct participation of the industry concerned. This is essential if the master plan is to provide a clear strategy, certainty over the direction of policy, the right incentives to the industry for business development, and to ensure consistency of individual projects," said Securities Commission Chairman Encik Ali Abdul Kadir, who is also the CMSC Chairman.

"With the setting up of this website, we hope that the general public will be better informed of the development and work of the CMP, and will find an avenue for their comments and suggestions," he said.
