To properly cover the workings of a modern enterprise, journalists need to understand how it is governed—and how various issues under the corporate governance umbrella fit together and affect the company’s performance. This Lessons Learned aims to help business journalists track down corporate governance stories, ask the right questions to uncover critical information, and explain complex subjects to the public.

This tenth meeting of the Latin American Corporate Governance Roundtable will provide an ideal platform to take stock of corporate governance developments in the region, and to assess priorities for further action. The aim will be to help policy-makers, regulators, investors, businesses and other corporate governance advocates to advance in relation to four main themes:
- Assessing progress on corporate governance implementation: results from a range of country-based and multi-country surveys of companies in the region will be shared, enabling participants to assess strengths, weaknesses and gaps requiring further information and action.

In its second year, the orporate Governance and Responsibility Forum (CGR Forum), organized by Schema, is truly an event not to be missed! Since the conclusion of the Forum in 2007, the number of companies that effectively implemented and gained value from best corporate governance and responsibility practices substantially increased. It is with this tangible success we continue to develop and improve in our region.
Times are difficult.. The financial crisis is not to be ignored, but nor is the significance of corporate governance and responsibility practices which can have a critically important affect on a company, sector, region, nation or an entire economy.
We believe this is a decisive and crucial time to encourage and support the advancement of discussions, debates and engagement levels of corporate governance and responsibility in the MENA region.
This year we will continue to build on outcomes and successes from 2007 by hosting the second Forum at the Dead Sea, Jordan in November of 2009. We welcome past participants and new entrants to engage with us as we all prepare for the challenges to come. We are anxious to include dynamic businesses to take a proactive role with us as we lead the CGR Forum 2009…
