                   Governance & Performance of Family Business

The Inaugural Asia-Pacific Corporate Governance Conference (APCGC) held in August 2005 was a very
successful event, which was attended by over 200 experts, scholars, corporate executives, institutional
investors, market intermediaries and regulators from all over the world.

Built on this success, this year we are convening the 2nd APCGC in August 2007 featuring keynote
speeches, concurrent academic sessions and 3 practitioner-oriented panel sessions with aims at promoting
high-quality research and practices on corporate governance in the Asia-Pacific region. This provides a
forum for enhancing exchange of views among participants on important governance issues faced by larger
or listed family businesses.
