    Improving Corporate Governance in Indonesia - Policy Options and Regulatory Strategies for Tackling Backdoor Listings

Pas tellement à cause des grossièretés, pourtant nombreuses, du jargon technique ou des acronymes obscurs : j’ai surtout été marqué par des termes qui paraissent conçus afin d’éluder toute possibilité de questionnement éthique.
