Rapid economic development has focused attention from around the world upon China's corporate governance regime-particularly as, during the past few years, some of China's companies, mainly large, state-owned companies, have been aggressively buying foreign businesses overseas. China's huge capital injection and aggressive foreign investments have raised increasing and deep concerns among the target countries' governments, their business communities, and the global public. It is clearly of great importance that the people's Republic of China's business-partner countries understand corporate governance of many Chinese state-owned companies calls for a closer look at China's corporate governance theory and practice. The corporate disclosure regime plays a critical role in this regard. This timely and highly informative book provides, for the first time, comprehensive research on corporate governance in China, with detailed attention to the formation and reform of its corporate disclosure laws and regulations. Among the many factors analyzed are the following: -the role of the government in the management of state-owned companies; -the legal and regulatory environment; -majority shareholders' infringement of listed companies' interests' -the increasing independence of the boards of directors; -the role of institutional investor; -the shareholding structure; -law enforcement and shareholders' legal actions; -unmonitored insiders' control of corporate affairs; -the external governance structure; and -the absence of fiduciary duty. The author describes the nature of the many breaches of disclosure laws and rules in the two decades or so of the history of China's securities market and the pressures within the relevant government agencies confronting the problem. As a detailed analysis of the Chinese corporate disclosure regime that has emerged during the period of China's economic transition since the 1990's, this incomparable book will be of great interest to legal researchers, policymakers, and legal practitioners working with business investments in China.

Listing by companies from one country on the stock market of another country is a device often used both to raise capital in, and to increase bonding with, the target country. This book examines the listing by Chinese companies on the Hong Kong stock market. It discusses the extent of the phenomenon, compares the two different regulatory regimes, and explores the motivations for the cross-listing. It argues that a key factor, in addition to raising capital and bonding with the Hong Kong market, is Chinese companies’ desire to encourage legal and regulatory reforms along Hong Kong lines in mainland China, in order to develop and open up China’s domestic capital markets.

Comparative legal studies are at last commanding the thoughts of contemporary jurists� Alice ES Tay. Drawing on an impressive ancestry in comparative law, the 22 contributions in this volume by authors from Asia, Australia and Europe go further in their complex conception of law and culture. They look at the new principles and concepts of a transnational, global law in new, multiple contexts and in diverse juxtapositions with new institutions and authorities. In an unplanned but cohesive pattern the individual contributions together open a fresh vision of the use and value of comparative legal studies for the assessment of the function and limitations of the law of a global society.
