Working Party on State Ownership and Privatisation Practices


The OECD Working Party on State Ownership and Privatisation Practices facilitates policy dialogue and information exchange between OECD Member countries and key partners on improving corporate governance of state-owned enterprises and implementing privatisation policies.


The Working Party was formed in 2001 to assist in the application of the OECD Principles of Corporate Governance specifically to state-owned enterprises. In support of this mission, the Working Party developed, and now oversees implementation of, the OECD Guidelines on Corporate Governance of State-Owned Enterprises


Further information about the Working Party’s participants and mandate can be found here. Links to the websites of many of the government agencies participating in the Working Party can be found below.
