Corporate Governance

Corporate governance has increasingly become one of the critical factors in reinforcing the achievement of corporate goals for many corporations.

This could be linked to a growing recognition that the primary goal of the corporations should be creating long-term real value for customers and wealth for shareholders, while simultaneously contributing to social well-being and environmental sustainability.
