Corporate governance in Asia continues to attract global interest due to its critical importance to the world's fastest-growing region. The study of governance systems remains complicated by Asia's mix of legal traditions, market systems and social history. This comprehensive textbook provides a comparative overview of the corporate governance framework, theory and practice in major Asian countries. Students at all levels will gain an understanding of corporate governance systems in Asia and how they compare with models attributed to the US, the UK and Europe. Featuring six foundational chapters focusing on general theory and corporate governance systems and eight country-specific chapters, this book can be used as the basic textbook for a general course on comparative corporate governance or as an essential reference about corporate governance in Asia for a wide variety of professionals including academics, jurists, students, practitioners, investors, creditors, policymakers and analysts.
