In 2003, the Asian Roundtable on Corporate Governance produced recommendations to
improve corporate governance in Asia, based on the OECD Principles of Corporate Governance.
This report summarises the results of a stocktaking exercise to determine progress
made to date and the challenges remaining in the implementation of these recommendations.
Included in this book are valuable insights into corporate governance rules and practices
of listed companies in Asia, notably: shareholder rights, the protection of non-controlling
owners, transparency and disclosure, as well as the role of company boards.
