Improving Corporate Governance
In 2002, the CSRC published the guidelines of corporate governance for listed companies, which set explicit requirements for corporate governance. The guidelines were mainly built upon OECD Principles of Corporate Governance.
In Sep. 2018, the CSRC revised the guidelines to adapt to the dramatic changes in domestic and overseas markets, and several new rules are added:
Establish the basic framework for ESG information disclosure;
Encourage institutional investors to participate in the corporate governance of listed companies, and that brokerage companies should pay more attention to listed companies' corporate governance when offering service.
In Oct. 2020, the State Council issued the Opinions on Further Improving the Quality of Listed Companies. The SSE subsequently formulated the Three-year Action Plan for Advancing the Quality Improvement of the Companies Listed on the Shanghai Stock Exchange to implement the Opinions of the State Council and the work arrangements of the CSRC, and to effectively support the healthy development of the capital market and the real economy.
