Conference Objectives:

Corporate Governance! The Basic Fabric of any Organization!

Breach of trust and confidence was a major issue in the corporate sector ever since Enron scandal broke out in October, 2001. Collapse of this corporate giant resulted in the erosion of investor confidence and affected the markets. Many reasons are attributed to the failure of Enron Corporation that includes accounting fraud, internet fraud, hiding losses from the purview of stakeholders, reckless behavior of company executives among others.

The Problem of Moral Hazard!

Questionable behavior of company management, of course, leads to unsavory incidents in the corporate sector. For instance, ‘predatory lending’ practices of executives compromising on well-structured norms, regulations and guidelines lead to multiple problems, in course of time. Bonus culture and compensation policy are the other two primary reasons that lead to erosion of morality and ethics in public and private institutions. All these practices are, clearly, an affront in the way a company or a bank functions.

Why is Corporate Governance Very Important?

Good corporate governance sends the much-needed right signals to the markets and investors which would help raise funds for companies. Sound corporate governance helps reduce the capital cost, as well. It is helpful in effective risk management and avoidance of losses. It expects organizations to behave in such a manner to work in the interest of all.

Against this backdrop, the upcoming conference in Jakarta makes an earnest attempt to achieve the following objectives;

a) Analyze how companies can introduce measures to take care of the interests of different stakeholders such as shareholders, managers, suppliers, customers, lenders, government and the community at large;

b) Examine the various ways and means by which transparency, fairness and accountability can be ensured in running a company;

c) Provide an ideal platform for researchers, economists, corporate executives and practitioners to share their research and practical experiences in all the major issues highlighted, as above; and

d) Offer novel ideas and suggestions to ensure healthy functioning of companies so as to avoid failures and scandals
