HKEX Consultation Paper - Proposal on Review of Corporate Governance Code and Related Listing Rules (Consultation Paper)

Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited (HKEX) published a Consultation Paper outlining the proposed enhancements to the Corporate Governance Code across five key areas:

1. Board effectiveness improvements
2. Strengthening board independence
3. Promoting diversity
4. Enhancing risk management and internal controls
5. Better capital management

One of the objectives behind these proposed amendments is to bolster robust corporate governance practices. These changes are slated to impact corporate governance reports for financial years beginning on or after 1 January 2025. Additionally, there will be a three-year transition period specifically for the recommendations concerning overboarding and Long Serving INEDs.
