Towards Sound Corporate Governance and Sustainable Growth: Strengthening the Role of Companies in Society @ Armani Hotel,

WHEN April 25, 2019 @ 9:00 am - April 25, 2019 5:00 pm
DETAILS

HH Sheikh Mohamed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Ruler of Dubai, laid out a series of principles for governance that reaffirm the UAE’s commitment to growth. He mentioned that “Dubai’s growth is driven by three factors: a credible, resilient and excellent government; an active, fair and open private sector; and public and government-owned flagship companies that compete globally and generate income for the government, jobs for its citizens and assets for future generation.” This year’s annual conference will explore how good corporate governance practices enable the government, the private sector, and government-owned enterprises to support sustainable economic growth in the face of rapid change and growing economic pressures.

What makes the region unique (or similar) with other markets as they deal with companies with similar corporate structures? How can regional organizations adopt good international practices given all the structural, institutional and cultural challenges? How can decision-makers strike the right balance that will elevate good governance practices beyond mere compliance, and ensure that good governance actually adds value?

Testimonials

  • The certified Board Secretaries Workshop provided by Hawkamah and Dubai Financial Market is an essential course for learning corporate governance, scope and responsibilities of the board secretary and understanding the governance and disclosure requirements of the Dubai Financial Market and the Securities and Commodities  Authority. It is a practical course which combined recent best practices and key learning lessons. I would highly recommend it for people involved in corporate governance and in particular in a listed company.
