Corporate Governance Contributes to Sustainable Economic Development by Enhancing the Performance of Companies

Corporate Governance relates to the relationships between Management, Board of Directors, Controlling & Minority Shareholders and other Stakeholders. It aims at increasing their access to outside capital.

“Corporate Governance is concerned with holding a balance between economic and social goals and between individual and communal goals. The aim is to align as nearly as possible the interests of individuals, corporations and society.”

Sir Adrian Cadbury, World Bank Report

The importance of Corporate Governance lies in its contribution to business prosperity and accountability. Investment decisions taken by the local and international investors are impacted by governance practices.
