OECD Network on Corporate Governance of State-Owned Enterprises in Southern Africa
Boosting the performance of the SOE sector through improved governance arrangements can potentially lead to better economic and social outcomes in Southern Africa.
The SOE Network for Southern African provides a forum for regional dialogue and co-operation. It is the first initiative of its kind to focus on SOE governance and mainly covers the member economies of the Southern Africa Development Community (SADC). The Network was launched in 2007 to support regional and national reformers in their efforts to improve the performance of SOEs. The Network achieves this through:
Annual meetings reinforce this process and dedicated regional taskforces work on specific recommendations for improvements in thematic areas.
Network participants are currently engaged in developing:
- Company guidance on anti-corruption and corporate ethics
- A white paper on the governance of SOEs in the infrastructure sector
