Belgium: new Code + greater shareholder rights

A couple of items. First: the Corporate Governance Committee has announced that a new corporate governance code is likely to be published by the end of January 2009, following a review earlier this year. Second, it has been reported in the Belgian newspaper De Tijd that the Government proposes to make it easier for quoted company shareholders to table resolutions at shareholder meetings.
