    State-owned enterprises and corruption - What are the risks and what can be done?

    This report assesses challenges and good practices in promoting integrity and preventing corruption in state-owned enterprises (SOEs) in a large number of OECD and partner countries. It analyses the perspectives of almost 350 SOE board members and executive management, and the state ownership entities of 28 countries. The report's three chapters address (i) experiences of corruption in the past and corruption risks of the present of over 200 SOEs; (ii) the adequacy of existing company-internal mechanisms, including internal controls, to counter corruption; and (iii) state practices in encouraging SOE integrity. The report addresses the challenges for the SOE economy as a whole and it also analyses corruption risks according to sectors of operation, explores high-impact activities such as bribery and conflict of interest, and it highlights how human factors such as opportunistic behaviour by individuals and unclear relations between companies and the state impact company integrity. The report concludes by suggesting options for the state as an enterprise owner to promote integrity in their SOE sector, laying the foundation for future OECD guidance on the subject.

    Corporate Governance in Lithuania

    This review of Corporate Governance in Lithuania was prepared in the context of Lithuania’s accession process to the OECD. It assesses Lithuania’s corporate governance arrangements – the laws, regulations and institutions that shape company oversight – for listed companies and state-owned enterprises (SOEs) against the standards of the G20/OECD Principles of Corporate Governance and the OECD Guidelines on Corporate Governance of State-Owned Enterprises. The report reaches a positive overall assessment of Lithuania’s willingness and ability to implement these corporate governance standards and makes a number of recommendations to address remaining weaknesses. With respect to listed companies, the report notably recommends that Lithuania give priority to monitoring implementation of recent legislative reforms to strengthen corporate boards of directors and, in the medium term, consider further strengthening and clarifying their legal responsibilities. With respect to SOEs, this report recommends that Lithuania give priority to further strengthening the effectiveness of the state’s ownership coordination function, ensuring that the state’s requirements on board composition and disclosure practices are fully implemented by the SOEs for which they are mandatory and moving forward with plans to convert commercially-oriented statutory SOEs to limited liability companies.
