View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Corporate governance has over the years become common parlance amongst corporates globally. It is a concept which saw its birth in the West, but has gained increased significance in the East. The 1997 Asian Financial Crisis is often cited as a catalyst for bringing corporate governance to the foreground, but really the international investor dollar brought about as a consequence of Globalisation has seen increasing efforts amongst Asian countries to take steps, occasionally drastic ones, to ensure enhanced corporate governance. This book titled The Practitioner's Guide to Corporate Governance in Asia then is a timely book. Intended as a comprehensive guide to corporate governance in nine countries, it provides the busy executive and investor with an insight into all key aspects of corporate governance in a country. It also includes a chapter on the US Sarbanes-Oxley Act 2002 introduced as a consequence of massive failures, including Enron and Worldcom in the US, focussing specifically on the relevance that this Act has on Asian companies. Chapters include: Introduction Mark Mobius, Templeton Franklin Investment Services Corporate Governance in Asia in a post-Enron World Kala Anandarajah, Rajah and Tann The Impact of the New US Corporate Governance Rules on Asain Companies Dennis Barsky & David Gibbons, Weil Gotshal and Manges Corporate Governance at a Crossroads: recommendations for Regulators Felipe B.
