Summary The aim in this study is to discover the nature and extent of corporate governance in listed companies in Thailand. This includes a consideration of theoretical underpinning for amendments made to the western models of corporate governance that have been implemented by Thai listed companies, and of the effect of corporate governance principles on financial information, including financial reports, used by stakeholders in Thai listed companies. The results in this study show that after the Asian financial crisis corporate governance in Thailand improved especially in enforcement and disclosure, and outside/independent directors and professional organisations are playing leading roles in that process. Better corporate governance has resulted from improved internal corporate governance mechanisms and enhanced accounting standards, information disclosure, and auditing standards. New and up-dated rules, new and revised laws, and increased regulation are in the forefront of improved corporate governance. Process-related activities like monitoring, supervising, enforcing, and higher awareness have increased. Moreover, corporate governance practices are now in the spotlight throughout the financial and investment markets.
