本次是共同富裕系列的第五場講座。去年年末，《公司法（修訂草案）》正式公佈，曾斌博士將就下述問題進行解讀：其一，監事會可能被審計委員會代替，這會對公司治理產生何種影響？ 其二，不再列舉董事會職權使得董事會中心主義初露端倪，但法定代表人制度和股東會諸多職權的保留，仍使該努力有所局限。 其三，上市公司將被強制要求設置職工董事，這會如何影響反收購中的控制權爭奪？ 同時，如何完善配套制度？ 其四，非執行董事、外部董事和獨立董事之間的邊界應如何釐清？ 最後，實控人和董監高相關責任的明確，是否能解決公司治理失效頻發的問題？
In our fifth webinar in Law and Common Prosperity Series, Dr. Zeng will talk about the “Company Law (Revised Draft)”, having been officially announced at the end of last year, raises a number of important questions. He will explore the changes introduced by the draft such as the Audit Committee replacing the Supervisory Committee and its impact on corporate governance. He will explore how the draft on the one hand introduces changes to strengthen board centrism, but that the legal representative system and the retention of many shareholder meeting powers still serve to hinder this trend. Dr Zeng will also discuss the requirement that listed companies be compelled to set up employee directors and how this may change the dynamics of reverse takeovers while also suggesting potential improvements. Finally, Dr Zeng will explore whether clarifying the responsibilities of corporate players, such as directors, senior management and supervisors, will solve the ever present problem of corporate governance failures.
