The OECD works to ensure that state-owned enterprises operate in a sound competitive and regulatory environment to promote efficient and open markets at the domestic and international level. It advances national reforms in countries across the world, guided by the internationally-agreed OECD Guidelines on Corporate Governance of State-Owned Enterprises.
The OECD Guidelines on Corporate Governance of State-Owned Enterprises give concrete advice to countries on how to manage more effectively their responsibilities as company owners, thus helping to make state-owned enterprises more competitive, efficient and transparent. First issued in 2005, the Guidelines were updated in 2015. They are currently being revised again to reflect nearly a decade of experience and evolving best practices since the first revision. The review is expected to be completed in 2024.
