Global CG Forum & IFC Report: “Corporate Governance and Development—An Update”

(Foreword) This updated Focus seeks to explain the links between economic development and corporate governance, based on experiences in many countries, sectors, and business organizations (from state-owned enterprises to publicly listed companies). It draws on new evidence that has become available since the Focus 1: Corporate Governance and Development was published in 2003.
