Strengthening Corporate Governance Around the World
Through a 10-year partnership with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), CIPE has strengthened corporate governance awareness, regulations, and practice. With just over $3 million from USAID, CIPE’s work and support of partner organizations has improved internal governance structures for public and private companies, helped to establish institutions that promote and monitor corporate governance compliance, improved private sector transparency and accountability, and encouraged significant legislative reforms.
From June 2000 to 2010, USAID supported CIPE and dozens of its partners’ corporate governance work in Africa, Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, Eurasia and Latin America.
CIPE’s USAID-funded corporate governance work focused on local solutions and support for the development and implementation of sound corporate governance practices and principles. CIPE and its partners worked:
- To increase awareness of the need for effective corporate governance practices and policies.
- To develop policy initiatives that would address corporate governance issues.
- To increase public awareness of corporate governance and shareholders’ rights.
- To increase investor confidence through the introduction of good corporate governance.
- To identify corporate governance best practices that can be applied in transitional economies and ensure the promotion of democracy.
