OECD-Asia Network on Corporate Governance of State-Owned Enterprises
Better corporate governance of state-owned enterprises is key for economic growth and competitiveness in Asian economies.
In many Asian economies, state-owned enterprises (SOEs) are still significant economic players. Good governance of SOEs is thus critical to ensure their positive contribution to regional economic growth and competitiveness. Efforts at reforming SOEs and improving their performance have highlighted the importance of: (i) an effective legal and regulatory framework that ensures a level playing field between SOEs and other companies; (ii) well-functioning SOE boards and management teams; and (iii) high standards of transparency and accountability.
The OECD-Asia Network on Corporate Governance of State-Owned Enterprises provides a forum for the governments of Asian countries and corporate governance practitioners to share good practices and identify common priorities for strengthening the corporate governance of SOEs. Its objectives are to:
The Asia SOE Network was first established in 2006 and then relaunched in 2015 with the support of the government of Korea. As before, the new phase of the Network seeks to identify common challenges related to state-owned enterprise ownership and governance, to share good practices and to develop recommendations for effective reform and performance management. The intention is also to use the Network to issue topical studies of SOE governance and reform comparing the practices of participating countries, based on the discussions at the Network meetings.
