25/06/2021 - The road to recovery will require well-functioning capital markets that can allocate substantial financial resources for long-term investments and a corporate governance framework that gives investors, executives, corporate directors and stakeholders the tools and incentives needed to make sure that corporate practices are adapted to the post-COVID-19 reality. The OECD will launch two new reports analysing developments in equity and corporate bond markets globally leading up to and including the COVID-19 crisis, and offering recommendations for adapting the corporate governance framework.
The Future of Corporate Governance in Capital Markets Following the COVID-19 Crisis and OECD Corporate Governance Factbook 2021 will be published at 11.00 CEST on Wednesday 30 June 2021.
OECD Secretary-General Mathias Cormann will present the reports at a launch event in Rome in the presence of Italy’s Minister of Economy and Finance, Daniele Franco, at 18.00 CEST/local time the same day. This event will be livestreamed.
Requests for electronic advance copies, under embargo, should be sent by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Journalists requesting an electronic version in advance of the release time agree to respect OECD embargo conditions. Embargoed copies will be sent out the day before the launch.
