The OECD Principles of Corporate Governance are being revised with a view to supporting sound financial markets that serve the real economy. The Business and Industry Advisory Committee (BIAC) to the OECD has actively contributed to the discussions and participated in a series of consultations over the last year. On 10 April, the OECD and the G20 are organizing a forum to further discuss the content and the direction of the review of the OECD Principles. It is intended to present the revised Principles at the meeting of G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors in September 2015 for transmission to the G20 Summit.
The forum will address two specific issues that are of crucial importance to private sector growth: the institutional capacity of small and medium-sized companies to grow and capital market development in emerging market economies. Dan Konigsburg of Deloitte, chair of the BIAC Task Force on Corporate Governance, will represent BIAC as a speaker on the first panel on “Having Finance Serve the Real Economy: Towards New OECD Principles of Corporate Governance.”
