Nottingham’s honorary doctorate for Zeti

Bank Negara governor Tan Sri Dr Zeti Akhtar Aziz was recently conferred the Doctor of Laws by Professor Fujia Yang, chancellor of the University of Nottingham at the fifth graduation ceremony of the Malaysian branch campus. 

In presenting Zeti with the honorary degree, Prof Chris Milner, the head of Nottingham's school of economics, said: “Under her stewardship, stability has been restored to the ringgit. There have been major reforms. Malaysia has witnessed the rapid development of new financial institutions and instruments, not to mention her role in promoting the development of Islamic finance and banking.”

Zeti, in her acceptance speech, told the graduates to be open to working with people from different backgrounds and to hold fast to the values that were good and important, particularly, those of basic honesty and integrity. 

“Always remember that these will form the foundations and basis of the trust that society will have in you,” she said.
