Russian Corporate Governance Roundtable: Workshop on Implementation and Enforcement of Disclosure Rules

 

Roundtable participants met in Moscow on 2-3 October 2003 to review corporate governance developments in the EU, U.S. and Russia, compared notes on  disclosure practices and discussed policy approaches to priority disclosure issues.

The Workshop was organised by the OECD in co-operation with the World Bank Group and co-hosted by the Russian Federal Commission for the Securities Market and the Ministry for Economic Development and Trade of Russia.  The event was co-sponsored by the Global Corporate Governance Forum.  Active participation by regulators, government officials, parliamentarians, representatives of the private sector including rating agencies, investment banks, director and investor associations, non-governmental organisations as well as leaders of the business community demonstrates the importance these institutions attach to moving the corporate governance agenda ahead.
