Conference on Company Law Reform in OECD Countries: A Comparative Outlook of Current Trends


The OECD organised a conference in Stockholm, Sweden, on 7-8 December 2000, to

  • Provide Member countries with a comparative update of company law reform in OECD countries;
  • Provide an opportunity for government officials and other experts involved in company law reform to share their experiences and develop a dialogue in a rapidly evolving policy area;
  • Allow for the input of top-level academic expertise into the comparative policy debate;
  • Provide input to the OECD's ongoing work in related areas, including corporate governance.

The conference identified three topical issues that should be subject to further examination: the impact of new information and communication technology on company law; company law and financial markets, and; company law and company growth.
