About the Network

The Latin American Network on Corporate Governance of State-Owned Enterprises (SOEs) helps to enhance the governance of 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 is jointly organised by the OECD and the CAF Latin American Development Bank.


Network priorities include:

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

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 supporting corporate governance improvements in the region since 2000.
