Corporate Governance in Asia 2011

Progress and Challenges

image of Corporate Governance in Asia 2011

In 2003, the Asian Roundtable on Corporate Governance produced recommendations to improve corporate governance in Asia, based on the OECD Principles of Corporate Governance. This report summarises the results of a stocktaking exercise to determine progress made to date and the challenges remaining in the implementation of these recommendations. Included in this book are valuable insights into corporate governance rules and practices of listed companies in Asia, notably: shareholder rights, the protection of non-controlling owners, transparency and disclosure, as well as the role of company boards.


Shareholders' rights and the equitable treatment of shareholders

The recommendation was issued with practices such as coordinated shareholder meetings on the same day; short notice periods for Annual General Meetings; and generally inadequate information policy leading up to meetings in mind. In addition, the use of company officers to ensure the integrity of meetings as well as facilitating the use of proxy and absentia voting was encouraged.
