The Monetary Authority of Singapore and the Singapore Exchange announced changes to the Code of Corporate Governance and SGX Listing Rules in August 2018.
SID, with the support of ACRA, MAS and SGX, is organising a series of sessions to brief companies and directors on the changes to the CG Code and SGX Listing Rules. To ensure that all listed companies have a better understanding of the corporate governance changes, the regulators will fully subsidise one participant from every listed company to attend the briefing session.
The session will take the participants through the establishment of the Code and its evolution over the years. Participants will acquire a better awareness on how the changes can help them support their companies to create value in the long-term and improve corporate performance.
The briefing sessions will be conducted by experienced faculty, with a panel discussion comprising regulators and experts from the industry to offer opinions and answer questions on the Code.
