SEC chairperson Teresita Herbosa said the agency is already done with the establishment of the Corporate Governance Blueprint (CGP), the development of which is the agency's response to different business group's requests for a much updated Code of Corporate Governance.
"On Saturday, we launched the first-ever Philippine Corporate Governance Blueprint (CGB). We've gotten the technical assistance from ADB to create that. It's a glossy publication and you'll find there all the roadmap that we will follow up to 2020 when it comes to trying to cultivate the culture of corporate governance in the Philippines," Herbosa said.
In an interview on the sidelines of the country's Launch of Financial Infrastructure Development Network held in Makati on Thursday, Herbosa said the roadmap will help the country's corporate sector become more competitive in the global arena.
Aside from this, she said the blueprint will highlight changes that will be included in the amendment of both of the Securities and Regulation Code and the Code of Corporate Governance.
"It's not the rules yet. It is a roadmap that would have the directions that we want in a form of recommendation and what we want Philippine companies should observe. It will show you rules that companies in other ASEAN countries follow. The revisions of the code will be based on the blueprint. Many items in the corporate code amendment are still open for discussion," Herbosa said.
While drafting the blueprint, SEC underwent series of discussions with industry group and the private sector.
"Finally, we were able to get all the private sector to come here and discuss all those areas important in corporate code of governance like the role of minority stockholders, disclosure and transparency, responsibilities of directors, among others," Herbosa said while expressing the success of the establishment of CGB.
When asked if five years is enough for the SEC to implement the objectives included in the blueprint, she only said "We should.
