Board Practices and Financing for Latin American State-Owned Enterprises, 2015
English | Spanish


The objective of the Latin American Network on Corporate Governance of State-Owned Enterprises (SOEs)  is to enhance the governance of State-Owned Enterprises (SOEs) in the region through an ongoing exchange of experience and knowledge on SOE governance policies, practices and reforms using the OECD Guidelines on Corporate Governance of State-Owned Enterprises as the main conceptual framework for discussion.


It also provides a mechanism to leverage the experience of a range of governments and other institutions with experience on SOE governance to share knowledge on policy and institutional frameworks and best practices to support well-governed SOEs across the region.


The Network is an integral part of wider activities to support better corporate governance, including feeding into the work of the Latin American Roundtable on Corporate Governance, which has been successfully supporting corporate governance improvements in the region for the last 10 years.


The Latin American Network on Corporate Governance SOEs:

  • raises awareness of all concerned constituencies on the importance and challenges related to the good corporate governance of SOEs;
  • evaluates the current SOE corporate governance policy frameworks and practices, and benchmark these against international best practice as described in the Guidelines;
  • influences policy making by providing a forum in which policy makers, practitioners and experts can share knowledge and experience among peers;
  • supports viable and effective reforms, by discussing and analysing policy options, developing relevant recommendations and agreeing on priorities for reforms.
