The NCOI 2005: Corruption the Weakest Link conference was held on July 16, 2005, and its success was seen in the large number of Christians coming together and signing the Anti-Corruption Pledge which will be handed over to the Prime Minister of Malaysia as a sign of the Christian community’s commitment to promote Integrity and to fight against Corruption in Malaysia. (You can continue to e-pledge online here)
Following upon this the organisers are holding a day-long conference on “Christian Citizenship and the Local Government”.
It is the desire of the organisers that Christians in Subang Jaya come together to participate in the formation of a culture of integrity at the grassroots level.
An outcome of this conference is to help Subang Jaya residents begin to formulate an action agenda for the participation of Christians and churches in the municipality in mobilising a citizen-led action against corruption in local government. At the same time Christians who have not been able to sign the NCOI 2005 Anti-Corruption Pledge will have the opportunity to do so.
This conference represents the coming together of the Church of Jesus Christ in Subang Jaya and fellow Christians to “speak the truth in love, full of grace and hope” on the specific issue of corruption and the need to build structures of integrity to ensure good government at the level of community life in Subang Jaya.
Opening speech by Tan Sri Bernard Dompok, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department.
