A total of 78 employees including the CEO, Senior Directors and Directors signed the pledge.
“This initiative is to enhance our credibility as an agency responsible for the ICP implementation in Malaysia and together with MACC in upholding the obligations entrusted. We look at act of corruption, abuse of power, malpractice or other similar acts as parasites. If this parasite is allowed to multiply within an organization, it will damage and can inhibit the growth of an organization regardless of small organisations such as TDAs or organizations that govern the country”, says Dato’ Zailani Safari.
He hoped that this pledge will serve as a deterrent to prevent them from slipping into corruption, which will not only damage the image and reputation of TDA, but also weaken and undermine the nation’s harmony.
