Corporate Governance Strategic Priorities (2021 to 2023)
The Corporate Governance Strategic Priorities 2021 – 2023 (CG Strategic Priorities) is a critical component of the Capital Market Masterplan 3 (CMP3), anchored on six key development and regulatory priorities. The CG Strategic Priorities will focus on five thrusts
and 11 strategic initiatives to among others, strengthen board capacity in addressing sustainability, scale up investor stewardship, enhance availability of corporate governance (CG) data through the use of digital tools, and further develop the collaboration with universities to deepen engagement with youth on corporate governance.
Businesses must play their role in society, as good corporate citizens with a purpose. Central to this much-needed reset is Corporate Governance. It can be instrumental in defining the role of stakeholders within a business, and to ensure that when decisions are made, the best interests of all stakeholders are considered.
