AS a follow-up to the article “Filling in the gaps of public sector governance” (The Star, March 1) by Datuk Latifah Merican Cheong, I would like to share my views on the forum in which I also participated.

Guest speaker Professor Kishore Mahbubani suggested that good governance can be measured by the increase in incomes and general standard of living of the population as a whole. He claimed that a decrease in income disparities between the rich and poor is not as important an indicator of good governance as socio-economic ones that showed the welfare of the poorest section of society had improved.
