(Fully booked) BDO webinar: Corporate Governance Code update

Date: 31 May 2022
Time: 15:00 - 16:00

  

  • Summary

The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong (The Exchange) reviews the corporate governance framework from time to time to ensure that it remains fit for purpose, continues to promote improvement in the quality of governance, and is adequate for maintaining investors’ confidence in the market. The latest Corporate Governance Code (CG Code) enhancement published on 10 December 2021 had generally taken effect on 1 January 2022.

Some of the key changes include corporate culture expectations, the strengthening of board independence and INEDs rotation, the implementation measures and transparency of board diversity and information, anticorruption and whistleblowing policies, ESG reporting timeline, and other corporate transparency and disclosure requirements.

Aiming at facilitating listed companies to adopt the latest CG code enhancement and achieve good corporate governance, in this webinar, we will highlight the key changes to the latest requirement and their rationale and implications to the listed companies.
