OECD is carrying out a review of the OECD Guidelines on Corporate Governance of State-Owned Enterprises. The SOE Guidelines offer a benchmark to help governments evaluate and improve the governance and performance of SOEs.Since their adoption in 2005, they have served as an important reference to guide national reforms in both OECD and MENA countries. The Guidelines are being revised to take into account changes in the corporate governance landscape since their adoption in 2005, and to reflect the experiences of the growing number of countries that have taken steps to implement their recommendations.

To this end, OECD have already organised a global consultation and now the final stakeholder consultation will be held on 8 September 2014 at the OECD headquarters in Paris. This consultation will provide a last opportunity for a broad range of stakeholders to comment on the draft text of the revised SOE Guidelines.
