Global markets have been significantly impacted by the global COVID-19 outbreak. The most volatile market and political environment brought unprecedented challenges to listed enterprises in many aspects, such as their risk management, corporate governance and corporate social responsibility. However, the opportunity that lies in every crisis. We are glad to see listed enterprises rolled with the punches by reform and innovation. In order to encourage listed enterprises with excellent performance and to recognize their contribution to Hong Kong’s economy, Bloomberg Businessweek/Chinese Edition is proud to present the fifth “Listed Enterprises of the Year”.
Entries will first be vetted by Bloomberg data based on business/financial performance, corporate governance, investor relationship, development strategy, corporate social responsibility, sustainability, innovation and risk management. Shortlisted companies will then be assessed by a panel of judges formed by senior government officials, professionals and academics. The two highest scoring companies of each industry will be named “Listed Enterprises of the Year”, and “Outstanding Performance” will be given to companies which excel in the above categories.“Listed Enterprises of the Year” is the first listed enterprise award applying Bloomberg Terminal data in the judging process in Hong Kong. Awardees, therefore, are widely recognized among professionals and investors in Hong Kong.
