Good governance is central to economic development of any country. The recent cases of bank fiasco has rekindled the debate on corporate governance and has forced us to revisit the existing regulatory structure and ask if the law has done enough to regulate conduct of corporations and ensure good governance. Interestingly, New Zealand has shown most progressive and “radical” development in laws, especially in regulations on Misleading or deceptive conduct that serves as a reminder of the high standards expected of directors and officers in the corporate governance of their companies.
To understand the nuances of good governance from regulatory perspective and the relation between regulations that govern misleading or deceptive conduct, Symbiosis Law School, NOIDA organized a Panel Discussion on ‘Corporate Governance, Misleading or Deceptive Conduct and Allied Regulations in India and Australia-New Zealand’ on August 29, 2018 from 9:00 am to 11:00 am.
