Opening statement on ASIC's priorities for the next 12 months
Opening statement by Tony D'Aloisio, Chairman, ASIC to the Senate Standing Committee on Economics, 30 May 2007.
Thank you Chairman. I would like to take the opportunity to make an opening statement.
I am honoured to have been appointed as Chairman of ASIC for the next 4 years. I am gratified by the support I have received for my appointment. I will do my utmost to uphold the values of such an important position for Australia’s corporate and capital markets.
Working constructively with our broad range of stakeholders, including business and consumers, business and consumer associations, Government and other agencies, I hope that over the next 4 years, ASIC’s actions will further improve business integrity in Australia. Our vision is that through our efforts and the efforts of our broad range of stakeholders, we will not only maintain but improve business integrity in Australia and, when benchmarked against global best practice, Australia’s position will be at the top.
