ECGI Asia Corporate Governance Dialogue
ECGRF is supporting the continuing dialogue between the European Corporate Governance Institute (ECGI) and leading academics in Asia. Established in 2011 by the ECGI and the University of Tokyo, the ECGI Asia dialogue series highlights the importance of global knowledge sharing on the field of corporate governance.
The inaugural conference took place in 2012 at the Financial Services Agency, Tokyo. The theme of the conference, which was organised by the University of Tokyo and the ECGI, was ‘Comparing Regulatory Reforms and Market Practices’. Opening remarks were given by Hans Dietmar Schweisgut, Ambassador of the European Union to Japan.

The theme of the second conference in the series, which took place in 2015 at the Centre for Law & Business at the National University of Singapore, was ‘Corporate Governance and Large Shareholders’. There were two sessions: the first on Corporate Governance of State-owned Enterprises provided an overview of recent regulatory developments and covered stewardship, disclosure and information, board responsibility and shareholder rights issues; the second on Regulating Controlling Shareholders looked at how these play a major role in common law as well as in civil law jurisdictions.
