The same model will compare how major companies of the countries are expressing this in information to shareholders. The thesis begins with an introduction to corporate governance and its internalization of the subject. It is stated in above-mentioned purpose of the study what the aim is with this research. Pakistani and Swedish legislation and companies are compared against each other and the view of best practice.
