In its 15th year, the Awards project in 2015 sets theme on "Good Corporate Governance: Cornerstone to a Strong Financial Centre". This theme reiterates the importance of sound corporate governance for all businesses in safeguarding the stature and goodwill of Hong Kong as an international financial centre.
Mr Henry Lai said, "HKIoD continually recognises directors and boards who demonstrated excellent director practices and corporate governance, as well as advocates awareness of the importance of good corporate governance and director professionalism in Hong Kong, which are fundamental to businesses and organisations of all types. It is worth noting that the many corporations implementing strong corporate governance play an important role in the Hong Kong business sector and are indeed the bedrock of the city's success as an international financial centre, which contributes to the city's economic prosperity."
Mr Huen Wong, Chairman of the Awards Organising Committee of DYA 2015 said, "We are highly honoured to witness the awarding for excellence in corporate governance tonight. The judging panel has carefully assessed the candidates' portfolios to ensure that awardees have been implementing effective measures to protect the benefits of their respective stakeholders. Congratulations to all winners for their dedication to the pursuit of the best practices of corporate governance. We sincerely hope that the winning directors and boards will serve as role models in leading their industries forward to create long-term value for the business and non-profit making communities at large."
Dr Carlye Tsui, CEO of HKIoD said, "HKIoD will continue to empower and educate directors with the latest trends in global best practices as we believe it is crucial that they should engage in continuing professional development. As the premier body representing directors, the Institute acts as a facilitator in advancing corporate governance by organising a wide array of insightful director professionalism programmes in Hong Kong. Looking ahead, directors and boards are expected to consistently lead with integrity and to work collaboratively in augmenting a clear and influential voice to promote the core values of Hong Kong's sound financial market system."

About Directors Of the Year Awards
First launched in 2001, Directors Of The Year Awards were the first-ever such Awards organised in Asiaand have now become an annual project of impact in the community.
