This panel will focus on market infrastructure development. In Japan, the stewardship and corporate governance codes have begun to show signs of encouraging listed companies to improve their corporate value and more clearly state their business goals and strategies, including ROE targets. Institutional investors have also become more active by engaging in constructive dialogues with the companies they invest in. Examining the effects of these measures, the panel discussion will also cover the expected roles of the securities market and industry in developing a sustainable economy and society, which include ESG finance and corporate social responsibilities.
