What is corporate governance?
Corporate governance is defined as “the system used to manage and control a business”, i.e. for "control and management" of companies through ownership, board structure, remuneration systems, company law, etc.
Corporate governance is about which overall goals companies should pursue and how companies' management structures and tasks are most appropriately organised and implemented.
