Added to these distinguished corporate and academic presenters were delegates from the 14 CSIA member countries and a significant number of prominent local governance corporate professionals and businessmen.

    9 August 2011 - Sustainability is a vital element of success for an organisation regardless of its geographical location. With confidence shaken in the governance systems of the West, new models are being developed as Asia, Africa, and Australia take the lead in corporate governance. Will sustainability be the catalyst that drives these different governance systems towards one global model? Will the various corporate governance systems that are emerging eventually converge?

    International experts will deliberate these questions and the many other facets of corporate governance as reflected in national and regional cultural contexts, legal systems and the political structures at the 1st International Corporate Governance Conference hosted by the Corporate Secretaries International Association (CSIA) and the Shanghai Stock Exchange (SSE) in Shanghai.

    “We are very excited to host CSIA’s inaugural conference in Shanghai, one of the leading financial cities in the world. That Shanghai Stock Exchange, the most prominent stock exchange in Mainland China is co-organising the conference reinforces the relevance and quality of the conference offering,” said Mrs. April Chan, CSIA President. “Hosting the conference here will bring Western and non-Western countries together to debate the issues surrounding corporate governance in a global context,” Mrs. Chan added.

    The conference will bring together international speakers and panellists from the UK, US, Australia, Africa, China and Asia, to discuss critical issues surrounding the conference theme Sustainable Corporate Governance – Towards a Global Model? Added to these distinguished corporate and academic presenters will be attendees from the 14 CSIA member countries and a significant number of prominent local businessmen.

    Conference highlights include Western Corporate Governance Practices: the Role Model? Non-Western Corporate Government Practices: the Emerging Model? Towards a Sustainable Global Model?

    “CSIA was launched in March 2010 when we also issued a research report titled ‘Twenty Practical Steps to Better Corporate Governance’ written by an internationally recognised expert on corporate governance, Dr R.I Tricker with contributions from leading corporate governance experts throughout the world. These twenty practical steps were in response to the global financial crisis,” says Mrs. Chan. “Following on from these twenty practical steps, this conference will seek to understand why corporate governance systems have diversified and whether or not sustainability in corporate governance is the one aspect that might force corporate governance practices to converge once more. ”

    Key speakers and panellists include:

    Mrs April Chan FCIS FCS(PE), President, Corporate Secretaries International Association; President, The Hong Kong Institute of Chartered Secretaries; Company Secretary of CLP Holdings Ltd.

    Ms Susie Cheung FCIS FCS(PE), General Counsel and Company Secretary, Hong Kong Mortgage Corporation Limited

    14 Jan. 2011, Hong Kong -- April Chan, President, Corporate Secretaries International Association (CSIA) addressed the opening ceremony of the 9th China Corporate Governance Forum, held in Shanghai on 18 December 2010.

    The Forum was organised by Shanghai Stock Exchange to highlight and discuss corporate governance issues in China and was supported by the State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the State Council (SASAC) and Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and was held to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Chinese capital and securities markets.

    Other luminaries who addressed the Forum included Shang Fulin, Chairman of the China Securities Regulatory Commission, Han Zheng, Mayor of Shanghai, Meng Jianmin, Vice Chairman of SASAC, Geng Liang, Chairman of the Shanghai Stock Exchange and Richard Alan Boucher, Deputy Secretary-General of the OECD.

    CSIA was invited to participate in the Forum as the global organisation that represents those professionals, who work as frontline practitioners of governance such as corporate secretaries, to implement best practice in the governance of corporations.

    "It was a great honour to be invited to address this Forum. It is through participating in such high level events that CSIA can raise its profile among Mainland China regulators and practitioners. This in turn helps CSIA to promote good governance and fulfil its mission as the global voice of corporate secretaries and governance professionals," said Mrs. Chan.

    During her address April noted the achievements China has made in its capital market during the last 20 years. She also introduced CSIA and spoke of its desire to contribute to the professionalization of the board secretary in China.

    "I was honoured to be asked to serve as CSIA President again and to contribute to the promotion of the professional status of Chartered /corporate/company and board secretaries globally," said April Chan. In the coming year, CSIA will focus on:

    Lobbying with the World Trade Organisation to introduce a separate Head in the Services Sectoral Classification List for corporate governance, compliance, and secretarial advisory professionals (CGCSA);

      Working with the Global Corporate Governance Forum, a World Bank/ International Financial Corporation initiative to produce a Corporate Secretaries Toolkit for use in multiple jurisdictions.
