This alliance allows Hawkamah to access and utilize PwC’s vast global resources, in terms of experts and research, and represents another significant step towards achieving Hawkamah’s strategic objectives of raising awareness and further advancing corporate governance in the region. Dr. Nasser Saidi, Executive Director of Hawkamah said: “The decision by PricewaterhouseCoopers to become a founding member and corporate sponsor of Hawkamah demonstrates their confidence in our initiative and highlights the importance of international corporate support. The practical expertise and wealth of knowledge that they will contribute is invaluable, since PwC is widely recognized as a leader in promoting sound corporate governance and best practices worldwide. With this partnership in place, Hawkamah and PwC will be able to work together effectively to help in the development and implementation of good corporate governance policies in the region, and specifically in the banking and financial sector we have already initiated our joint work through PwC’s support of the Hawkamah World Bank insolvency task force for the MENA region .” Michael Stevenson, Senior Partner, Middle East Region, PwC, said: “In order to continue our efforts to encourage the advancement of corporate governance in the Middle East, our association with Hawkamah is a perfectly logical choice.
