The public consultation is now closed.
Today, SOEs account for 22% of the world’s largest companies and their role as global competitors is growing as the boundaries of markets increasingly extend beyond geographic borders. They are often concentrated in sectors with strategic importance for the state and society and are increasingly operated like private firms. The OECD is developing Anti-Corruption and Integrity Guidelines for State-Owned Enterprises (ACI Guidelines) for use by states as owners to help them promote integrity and anti-corruption in the SOEs they own. The ACI Guidelines will complement the goals of the OECD Guidelines on Corporate Governance of State-Owned Enterprises.
The draft text of the ACI Guidelines was made available during January 2019 for public comment. We received input from business and labour representatives, civil society, partner countries and other interested stakeholders. The ACI Guidelines are being developed by the OECD Working Party on State Ownership and Privatisation Practices in co-operation with other OECD bodies. The comments we received will be taken into account by the Working Party and the final text will be agreed by the Working Party for completion in mid-2019.
Please send any comments or questions to Alison McMeekin, Policy Analyst ([email protected]).
