Johor Corporation is continuously committed to sustain its integrity and enhance its organisation’s governance across the board through variety of programmes including the “Johor Governance and Integrity Summit 2018” held recently.

With the theme “Integrity Drives the Sustainability of Organisation”; the summit was held in conjunction with the National Integrity Day and was first of its kind in Johor. The event was officiated by Dato’ Haji Osman bin Haji Sapian, Menteri Besar Johor who is also the Chairman of JCorp.

Osman in his speech said that the Government is committed in transforming the New Malaysia that is built based on justice, good governance, integrity and rule of law.
