TWSE holds event for listed companies
The Taiwan Stock Exchange (TWSE) held the first “Networking Event for TWSE-listed Companies” to promote interaction and exchange between TWSElisted companies, as well as the implementation of corporate social responsibility (CSR), at the Taipei International Convention Center on Monday.
TWSE invited Tseng Mingchung, Chairperson of the Financial Supervisory Commission (FSC) and Wu Yui-Chun, Director-General of the Securities and Futures Bureau (SFB) to provide guidance to companies on how to attach importance to corporate governance and implement CSR. This will help achieve the vision of “effectively shaping Taiwan’s corporate governance culture and creating a mutually beneficial enterprise value.”
The capital market serves as a window for economic development, while corporate governance serves as the cornerstone for the capital market. In the business process, fair treatment of all stakeholders promotes the mutual growth of business and society. TWSE has specially invited domestic financial legal expert, former chief justice of the Constitutional Court of the Republic of China, Lai In-Jaw to conduct a thematic speech on “corporate governance” and “corporate social responsibility.” This will serve to enhance the importance of business integrity, as well as the implementation of corporate governance and corporate social responsibility.
To strengthen corporate ethics and the implementation of CSR, TWSE invited 859 TWSE-listed companies to participate in the “Networking Event for TWSElisted Companies.” According to estimates, approximately 200 domestic/foreign TWSE-listed companies will be sending representatives to attend the first session of the “Networking Event for TWSElisted Companies.”
The second session will be held in Taipei on April 27. Three other sessions will be held at Hsinchu, Taichung, and Kaohsiung on May 6, May 7, and May 8, respectively. TWSE welcomes all domestic/foreign TWSE-listed companies to join the festivities.
