AS the Secretary-General of the Federation of Trade Unions of Employees in the Banking and Financial Institutions (FEBFI), I would like to forward our sincere congratulations to Datuk Muhammad Ibrahim on his appointment as the Governor of Bank Negara Malaysia, effective May 1, 2016.
FEBFI welcomes his appointment and strongly believes that Datuk Muhammad’s appointment to head the central bank will ensure the continuity of the effectiveness of Bank Negara Malaysia as a regulatory agency of the country’s financial system, which has also gained international recognition.
Based on his experience in the field of bank regulation and supervision, strategic planning, payment systems, insurance, offshore banking and treasury and financial markets, FEBFI is confident that this will bring Malaysia to a new paradigm and a more constructive level.
As the country is facing financial and economic challenges, the nation needs continuity of leadership that will maintain the excellence of the country’s financial regulatory system.
Thus, FEBFI will continue its cooperation and support rendered to the Bank Negara over the years.
I also like to share our sincere appreciation to Tan Sri Dr Zeti Akthar Aziz for her contributions and excellent services to the nation as Bank Negara Malaysia Gabenor.
