Governance

Slovenia 13th in Global Sustainable Competitiveness Index

Slovenia scored 53.8 points, and fared best in terms of governance efficiency, trailing only Ireland and the Czech Republic.

Governance efficiency measures the results of core state areas and investments - infrastructure, market and employment structure, and the provision of a framework for sustained and sustainable wealth generation.

NED Club to improve corporate governance

A year-and-a-half after the Folli Folie scandal broke, tainting the reputation of Greek business internationally, the market itself has created a new entity with a mission to promote good corporate governance and entrepreneurship. The Non-Executive Directors' Club in Greece, or NED Club, was launched at an event at the British ambassador's residence in Athens on Monday night.

Paradigm shift

Restoring the integrity of Greece's key institutions should be top priority after what the country went through in the past four years at the hands of the previous, leftist administration.

The new conservative government will have to show determination in this task, but it will have to combine this with a good measure of wisdom and moderation.

Editorial: Reforming the state

The governmental organisational chart presented by incoming Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis is by all accounts innovative and is the first reform at the highest administrative level of the country.

Essentially it is the first attempt to apply principles and rules of corporate governance that have existed for decades in the private sector to the government and the state.

Transparent private sector

Except for radical changes in the public sector, Greece also needs serious reforms in the private one. It is crucial that strict rules of corporate governance are introduced, and effectively monitored by responsible authorities.
