Hide / Show Abstract

Corporate governance matters for national development.  Studies of Brazil, Chile, India, and South Africa show that corporate governance has an important role to play in helping both to increase financial capital to firms in developing countries and to enhance those countries’ financial development as a whole.  They further show that corporate governance matters can contribute greatly to achieving sustained productivity growth in developing countries’ real economies.  The value of improved corporate governance for development cannot, however, be considered in isolation.  In the financial sector, attention must also be given to measures to strengthen the banking sector and a country’s financial institutions as a whole.  To gain most from improved corporate governance in the real economy, close attention must also be given to competition policy and to reforms of sector-specific regulatory practices.  The book is for civil society, NGOs and research institutes.
