From the Paper:

"The literature review revealed that some attention has been paid to corporate governance and its effects on competitiveness and firm trustworthiness as far as investors are concerned. However, it also revealed that regionalization due to an inferior infrastructure plays a significant role in the inability to apply uniform laws. Several important factors were revealed that may serve as metrics for the current study. For instance, executive salaries were found to be directly linked to firm performance in state-owned enterprises. A significant difference exists between private enterprise and state-owned enterprise. This will have to be addressed as well. Now let us examine an overview of the methodology that will be used to explore these research issues. "
