New Challenges for the Boards in Frontier Markets

17 May 2023

The Board of Directors is a fundamental component of corporate governance, which plays a critical role in decision making and value creation. Addressing the board members creates a leveraged impact on society, which is shaped by the largest corporations. Board independence, efficiency and diversity are essential aspects when examining whether or not the Board is effectively meeting its fiduciary duties and responsibilities to address corporate strategy, shareholders' interests, climate change and social issues.

This event assembled senior leaders of companies operating in EM markets who have set the gold standard in their industries to discuss the increasing role of the board, and share the unique experience of board leadership in establishing corporate governance practices. We focused on practical experiences and cases on the recent trends in Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan to enrich the discussion.
