Corporate Governance week

The University of the Dutch Caribbean (UDC) and the Governance University (GU) Nederland are organizing The Week of Corporate Governance.  After a Master-class Corporate Governance in May and June of this year, UDC, GU Nederland, and Key Corporate decided to hold the Week of Corporate Governance from October 13 until 17. 

There will be several activities that are related to Corporate Governance, like a seminar at the Bank of the Netherlands Antilles with the title ‘Implementation of Corporate Governance in Curaçao’, a master-class for directors, one for commissioners, and several deepening modules (self-evaluation, and work in/with audit-committees).

All these activities are accredited by the Nivra in the Netherlands and the GU does the certifying.  According to Stefan Peij, director of the Governance University Nederland, Corporate Governance is about conceptions, like governing, managing, responsibility, voice, justification, and supervision.  These conceptions are also in the political process, in which interested parties exert influence on the state of affairs in enterprises.

In the Island ordinance Good Corporate Governance, concrete governance-demands are made to public enterprises.  During the seminar, the code as regards contents will be discussed, terms used will be explained, and a concrete plan will be developed on how to move over to implementation in the own company, without too many administrative troubles.  Speakers are among others Prime Minister Emily de Jongh-Elhage and Commissioner Eugene Rhuggenaath.  The master-classes are given by among others Ruud Thuis, Miguel Pourier, Richard Hart, Geomaly Martes, Raymond Faneijte, Lindomar Scoop, and Jeroen Eichhorn.

The seminar takes place in the auditorium of the Bank of the Netherlands Antilles on Monday, 13 October from 14:00 till 17:00.
