The objectives of this study were to:
- Examine corporate governance requirements in terms of clarity and completeness of content, degree of enforceability and prevalence
- Identify common/basic corporate governance requirements and emerging trends
- Raise awareness of the similarities and differences in corporate governance requirements across markets, geographic regions, economic zones and pillars/themes of corporate governance, and
