Corporate Governance Consideration during the COVID-19 – A Taiwanese Lesson of Corporate Social Responsibility and the Director’s Duty

Corporate Governance Consideration during the COVID-19 – A Taiwanese Lesson of Corporate Social Responsibility and the Director’s Duty

During the pandemic, companies have activated their business differently and followed restrictions issued by authorities. How should the board of directors react to this crisis with the best interests of the company, will this crisis change the roles of the board of director differently? Should the company focus on long-term or short-term goals? How can the board monitor the management efficiently during a lock down? Can shareholders remain engaged with social distancing? Of the 100-plus countries and territories affected, Taiwan has the lowest incidence rate per capita — around 1 in every 500,000 people. This webinar will consider the implications of recent amendments to Taiwanese corporate law for companies during the pandemic.
