Secretary General of WZF, Prof. Dr. Bambang Sudibyo, MBA; CA said, one of the discussion materials is a technical document Good Amil Governance as a step to realize Zakat Core Principle.

This document will become a standard for international zakat management and a reference for all zakat management organizations.

Good Amil Governance will make the management of zakat become more professional, so its benefit for mustahik is getting bigger.
