  • This thesis examines the development of the independent director system in China. The newly introduced independent director system is viewed as a revolutionary change to the Chinese corporate governance development. After analyzing the barriers in independent directors’ practice in China, this thesis gives some suggestions on how to improve the independent director system in China. Finally the thesis concludes that the independent director system will certainly become effective in China, but only if China’s policy makers can eventually solve the existing problems.
