New Book Project on Corporate Governance in Emerging Markets

At the beginning of the year publishing house “Virtus Interpress” together with the Virtus Global Center for Corporate Governance initiated a project of writing a book on corporate governance in emerging markets.

In globalized world investors, business leaders and researchers seek for the new markets to invest their money, create new cooperation and businesses or initiate research in order to understand unexplored issues better. Markets of the developed countries provide high level of competition and although reduce relevant levels of risks – provide comparatively low income margins. On the contrary, each year importance of the emerging countries rises and it is vital to be fluent in all peculiarities of the national corporate governance models.
