Working Party on State Ownership and Privatisation Practices

 

The OECD Working Party on State Ownership and Privatisation Practices facilitates policy dialogue and information exchange between OECD Member countries and key partners on improving corporate governance of state-owned enterprises and implementing privatisation policies. The Working Party was formed in 2001 to assist in the application of the OECD Principles of Corporate Governance specifically to state-owned enterprises. In support of this mission, the Working Party developed, and now oversees implementation of, the OECD Guidelines on Corporate Governance of State-Owned Enterprises.

 

Members of the Working Party include all 34 OECD Member countries and the EU Commission. The following countries have been invited to participate on a regular basis: Brazil, China, Colombia, India, Indonesia, Latvia, Lithuania, Russia and South Africa. The table below provides a list of government agency(ies) responsible for the ownership and oversight of state-owned enterprises in those countries, where relevant, along with links to their websites when possible.
