Corporate Governance in Russia



OECD Russia Corporate Governance Roundtable 

In December 2011, the OECD and the Moscow Exchange, MICEX-RTS, launched the OECD Russia Corporate Governance Roundtable. The Roundtable builds on longstanding co-operation between Russia and the OECD in corporate governance starting in 1999.

The Roundtable tackles outstanding corporate governance challenges in Russia and helps develop a robust legal and regulatory framework. Through dialogue, research and access to international expertise, the Roundtable encourages reforms and fine tuning of existing regulations while pressing for better implementation and effective enforcement. The Roundtable contributes to international understanding of Russian corporate governance developments and ongoing efforts.

The Roundtable is a long term commitment involving a wide circle of Russian and foreign participants, expert groups, association, and private sector participants who want to improve corporate governance in Russia. The Roundtable is supported by the Ministry of Economic Development, the Bank of Russia, the Moscow International Financial Centre Taskforce, the Federal Service for Financial Markets and the Ministry of Finance among others.
