Abstract

Purpose - This paper is to be concerned with the corporate governance mechanisms’ influence on governance and enterprise restructuring in Southeast Europe (Western Balkans) transition economies: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia. Hence, the basic hypothesis to test governance and enterprise restructuring is that it is influenced by gross domestic product and foreign direct investments dynamics. Design/methodology/approach - The econometric model that is used in this study is a regression model. Further, the estimation is based on data provided by the data bases of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) Transition report series, the World Bank Database and the National Banks’ databases of the countries in Southeastern Europe. The hypothesis is that the variable governance and enterprise restructuring is encouraged by movements in gross domestic product and especially foreign direct investments dynamics. Findings - It is apparent that governance and enterprise restructuring advance through time due to imposed policies, as well as, overall progress of the economies’ gross domestic product and especially the influx of foreign direct investments. Originality/value - This paper is a contribution to the research developing the business aspects of the Southeast Europe economy, as there is constant lack of scientific papers that deal with the specific issues of corporate governance and enterprise restructuring.
