RM50K sponsorship for debating championship

INVESTMENT in human capital has been a priority of Commerce International Merchant Bankers Bhd (CIMB) in line with its corporate aspiration to be South-East Asia's most valued universal bank. 

CIMB believed its sponsorship of the 13th All Asians Debating Championships, which will take place in Langkawi from May 6 to 14, would contribute to a knowledgeable and intellectually vibrant community, said Bumiputra-Commerce Bank Bhd (BCB) director (group CEO office) Tunku Ahmad Bur-hanuddin. 

He said the sponsorship was to motivate local graduates to become wholesome individuals that not only excelled academically but were also articulate and could think out of the box. 

“CIMB's involvement with the debating championship is consistent with the bank's objectives in promoting intellectual discourse among university students in the region,” he told reporters in Kuala Lumpur recently prior to presenting a mock cheque for RM50,000 to the organising committee of the debate.
