Active from 1999 to 2008, the original Russian Corporate Governance Roundtable brought together an informal but highly influential network of Russian and international policy makers and private sector decision-makers to:
facilitate Russian participation in international policy dialogue
provide a forum where Russian policy makers and experts can strengthen and develop contacts with their peers in other countries and facilitate exchange of experience
support reform analysis by advancing the understanding of viable policy options as well as implementation and enforcement mechanisms in the area of corporate governance
The Federal Commission for the Securities Market and the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade are the key institutional partners in Russia
Law-makers, securities markets institutions, the corporate sector, investors, stakeholders and select legal, financial accounting professionals and academics from Russia and OECD countries partake actively.
The Russian Corporate Governance Roundtable receives financial support from the European Commission under its Tacis Program and the Global Corporate Governance Forum.
