Istanbul, Turkey - 1 February 2012
The OECD and the Turkish Capital Markets Board organised the meeting "Corporate Governance, Innovation and Value Creation". The meeting addressed the process of value creation within the corporations, the role of corporate governance arrangements in providing right incentives and financial instruments to contribute to this process, how differences in ownership structures may call for differences in corporate governance arrangements among listed companies.
Particular attention was given to corporate structures in emerging markets, focusing on how a more institutional and credible corporate governance can be developed in order to facilitate corporate access to capital without losing their entrepreneurial drive and flexibility.
The meeting was attended by over 100 participants from OECD and non-OECD countries. Senior speakers from governments, business and academia included Marcello Bianchi, Chair, OECD Corporate Governance Committee and Director at CONSOB, Italy; Vedat Akgiray, Chair of Capital Markets Board of Turkey and IOSCO Emerging Markets Committee; Maria-Helena Santana, Chair of Brazilian Securities Commission and IOSCO Technical Committee and Ranjit Singh, Managing Director of Malaysian Securities Commission.
