KUCHING: Sarawak Tourism Board (STB) is committed to good governance practices and integrity.

According to its chairman Dennis Ngau, STB’s core values — E.P.I.C (Excellence, Professionalism, Integrity and Caring) — were very much in line with the state government’s call for statutory bodies to develop their respective Organisational Anti-Corruption Plans (OACP).

“The plan will be used as an effective instrument to remain steadfast in identifying problems and risk factors that will lead to a corruption-free environment within the governance framework in STB,” he said during STB’s Integrity Day here on Monday (Jan 24).

Dennis also reminded STB staff at all levels to maintain integrity in their work as this helped foster an open and positive work environment and an ethical approach to decision-making.

“In STB, we strive to enhance our awareness in identifying the sources of risk to corruption, abuse of power and irregularities in practice, systems and procedures.”

The event also saw the launch and signing of the OACP and STB’s Corruption Risk Management (CRM), which will serve as a guideline for everyone under STB’s umbrella to enhance their awareness of the primary principle of integrity, which is incorruptibility.

“We at STB are proud to be able to further showcase our commitment to the values of integrity by taking Corruption-Free Pledge to fight against corruption, raise staff competency and improve service delivery.

“With our continuous initiatives to instil a corruption-free working environment, we hope to be a leading example for other statutory bodies and portray a strong and positive image among our tourism stakeholders and the public.”
