Corporate Governance is the system by which organizations are directed and controlled. The corporate governance structure specifies the distribution of rights and responsibilities among different participants in the organization, such as, the board, managers, shareholders, and spells out the rules and procedures for making decisions on the company’s affairs. By doing this, it also provides the structure through which the company objectives and set, and the means of attaining those objectives and monitoring performance.
BEI is committed to establishing sound practice of corporate governance in Bangladesh, through its continuous research, training, discussions and dialogues with key practitioners of governance, and to send a strong message to investors and observers in the international arena that Bangladesh has recognized the importance of corporate governance and is taking definite steps to improve its corporate governance performance in the private, public, and the non-governmental sector.
The strategic goal of BEI’s CGSP is to build the operating capacity to apply good corporate governance practices for economic and social development of Bangladesh, and thus make significant contribution toward encouraging investment, strengthening the capital market, boosting economic growth and reducing corruption.
