The partnership also seeks to address the evolving challenges and opportunities in corporate governance, including emerging trends such as ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) practices, responsible investment, and stakeholder engagement. By combining their resources and expertise, the IICA and RRU aim to enhance the understanding of these critical areas and contribute to the advancement of sustainable and ethical business practices.

Furthermore, the collaboration will enable the development of joint research projects that focus on pressing issues related to corporate governance, policy reforms, and sustainable development. The findings and insights generated through these research initiatives can help inform policymakers, industry leaders, and other stakeholders in making informed decisions and shaping effective governance frameworks.

The MoU between the IICA and RRU signifies a shared commitment to promoting academic excellence, research collaboration, and knowledge dissemination in the fields of corporate governance and sustainable development.
