PETALING JAYA: The G25 group of prominent Malays will be organising a public forum on good governance at the Universiti Malaya Alumni Association (PAUM) clubhouse.

The one-day forum, titled "Reforms for a Progressive Malaysia", aims to discuss and put forward recommendations for reforms for public sector governance, promoting a clean government, moderation of Islam in Malaysia and national unity.

G25 founding member Datuk Noor Farida Ariffin said the forum is in line with the groups' aspirations to strengthen the public institutions and the system of check and balances in the country.

"Apart from the administration of Islamic issues, we are always focusing on issues of good governance... We have always emphasised that the country needs to strengthen its public institutions, its judiciary and its parliament," she said, adding that the group is apolitical.

She said that no matter who is in government, there would be no scandals if the public institutions are strong.

Noor Farida encouraged those who are interested in issues of good governance to attend the forum.

"It is time for the silent majority to speak up," she added.

The line-up of notable speakers include former Bank Negara assistant governor Datuk Latifah Merican Cheong, former Khazanah Nasional managing director Tan Sri Mohd Sheriff Mohd Kassim, Noor Farida and more.

Registration is free and lunch will be served.

The forum will be held on Saturday (Jan 27) from 8.30am to 6pm at the Universiti Malaya Alumni Association (PAUM) clubhouse.
