These honours are designed to inspire excellence among the different layers in corporate hierarchy, especially now that Asia continued to gain further recognition in the global arena as a favoured investment destination in view of its robust economic growth.
Indeed, Asia continued to attract capital that provided the region with a wall of liquidity, but this inflow comes with the increasing scrutiny from the global investors who are looking for avenues to park their money. They are looking for the best investment opportunities, for the highest yields for their capital, yet they are doing so with well-rounded parameters which include corporate governance.
