Corporate governance principles

1st Meeting of the Eurasian Corporate Governance Roundtable


19-20 October 2000

The Eurasian Corporate Governance Roundtable was launched in Kiev on 19-20 October 2000. Over 100 leading government and private sector representatives from Ukraine and other Eurasian countries, along with selected international counterparts, academics, international financial institutions and OECD member countries experts took part in the meeting, which was hosted by the Ukrainian Cabinet of Ministers. This first meeting served primarily to provide an overview of current corporate governance trends in the region, with a particular focus on Ukraine. The meeting was organised with the support of International Finance Corporation and the US Agency for International Development and sponsored by the Japanese Government, the World Bank-OECD Global Corporate Governance Forum, and the Canadian International Development Agency.

In order to attract domestic and international investors, Eurasian participants agreed that their legal framework needs to be consolidated and enforced.

Over the next 24-30 months, further meetings of the roundtable will be organised in Eurasian capitals. They will form part of a sustained global dialogue whose purpose is to improve the understanding of the role of corporate affairs policies in increasing the efficient allocation of resources in the economy as a whole. The next meeting will take place in Tibilisi, Georgia, in June 2001.
