"Starting with a historical approach the author has traversed the intricacies of current laws and regulations and looked at the major issues surrounding corporate behavior. Some of what can be considered to be current ills may be cured and some may not. I commend this book to anyone who has dealing in corporate affairs. It will be informative and the definitive work on corporate governance in Hong Kong."
Praise for the first edition of Corporate Governance and Compliance in Hong Kong by Anthony Rogers, Former Chairman of the Standing Committee on Company Law Reform and Vice-President of the Court of Appeal
While there is no universally agreed definition of 'corporate governance' this book provides an excellent foundation for the reader to explore and form their views on the important aspects of corporate governance and compliance.
Corporate Governance and Compliance in Hong Kong - Second Edition is the definitive work for legal advisors, compliance officers, judges, regulators, government officials, company directors, business people, managers, stakeholders, academics and all other professionals who wish to know and understand the intricacies of Hong Kong's law relating to corporate governance.
The second edition of this definitive work will be available later this year and will be fully updated to reflect the new Companies Ordinance (Cap 622). The Ordinance represents a major rewrite of Cap 32 with one of the main aims to enhance corporate governance.
The book covers all areas of corporate governance and compliance issues for practitioners, including:
- Legal and Regulatory Framework and Reform
- Directors' Duties and Powers
- Company and Corporate Administration
- Shareholders' Duties and Powers
- Financial Reporting and Auditors
- Corporate Social Responsibility
- Ethical Governance
