Good governance of state-owned enterprises is essential to ensure their contribution to economic efficiency and growth. OECD is the world's leading standard setter in this respect.

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.

OECD Guidelines on Anti-Corruption and Integrity in State-Owned Enterprises can help states to ensure that owners exemplify integrity in their conduct, that ownership arrangements are conducive to integrity, that SOEs adhere to good practices at the SOE level and that accountability mechanisms are integral to SOE sectors.
