In the field of commercial law, what is the general interest?

The general interest, in the business field, refers to the well-being and benefit of society as a whole, beyond the particular interests of a company or group of people. It is related to the impact and contribution that a company can have in the society in which it operates.

The general interest is focused on companies seeking to maximize their economic benefits and taking into account the social, environmental and ethical aspects of their operations. This implies acting responsibly, respecting human rights, protecting the environment, promoting equity and contributing to the sustainable development of the community.

An example of general interest could be the publication of the financial statements of a publicly traded company. When a company issues financial reports on a regular basis, such as the balance sheet, it is providing detailed information about its financial health and economic performance. Likewise, this disclosure of information is of general interest, since it affects a wide public. Transparency in the disclosure of financial information contributes to confidence in the market and allows interested parties to make informed decisions about their investments and business relationships.

Similarly, confidence is provided to the market and stakeholders by providing accurate information on the performance of a company. This allows informed decisions to be made, risks are mitigated and fair competition is fostered. In addition, legal compliance is ensured and business relationships are strengthened.
