Plenary 8: Regional regulatory round up: challenges and opportunities

Regulators, legislators and standard-setters play an important role to ensure a transparent, fair and efficient corporate governance framework enabling the proper allocation of resources to underpin long-term value creation. Companies, investors, and society at large rely on this system based on the premise of effective supervision, enforcement, and application of the rule of law. Within the context of our emerging understanding of the governance of sustainability, what issues are currently being prioritized? What is meant by interoperability? Is it possible to harmonise efforts and coordinate more effectively. And what are the challenges and opportunities ahead?
