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

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?
