Implementation of HKEX’s consultation conclusions on corporate governance

January 2019

About a year ago, the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited published the Consultation Paper on Review of the Corporate Governance Code and Related Listing Rules. It then published the Consultation Conclusions in July 2018, which sets out the amendments to the Rules Governing the Listing of Securities on the Exchange and the Corporate Governance Code and Corporate Governance Report (Appendix 14 of the Listing Rules). The amendments, which are set out in Appendices III and IV of the Consultation Conclusions, became effective on 1 January 2019.
