Survey of Corporate Governance in Asia

The OECD has just published its OECD
Survey of Corporate Governance Frameworks in Asia
. Covering 14 different
economies in Asia, the Survey covers various aspects of corporate governance
from ownership structures, regulatory issues, board matters, shareholder
rights, and the like that are prominent in relation to corporate governance of
companies in those countries. The key is that in most of these jurisdictions,
there is concentration of ownership (at varying levels) and hence corporate
governance issues may be different from that faced in an Anglo-American
context. Although the Survey is a top-level one containing an examination of
key parameters in corporate governance, it is nevertheless useful for academics
or practitioners looking at Asia from a broader comparative perspective.
