This study examines the relevance of internet in improving corporate governance practices among listed companies in Malaysia. Using 100 companies listed on the Bursa Malaysia, the results of this study indicate that there is an acceptable level of reporting for internet corporate governance. Such results indicate that more than half Malaysian companies recognise the importance of practicing good corporate governance and fully supported the recommendations of Malaysia Code of Corporate Governance (MCCG). Such results suggest that there is an acceptable level of corporate governance via the internet in Malaysia. This study suggests that an important reformation is taking place in corporate reporting disclosure via the internet. This step is inherently important to ensure that Malaysian public listed companies could compete globally in the near future. The findings in this study could promote Malaysian regulators to specify the means by which Malaysian listed companies are to disclose transparent and credible information.
