2021 OECD Global Anti-Corruption & Integrity Forum


In response to COVID-19, the state is getting more involved in the business sector, offering crisis-related financial support to private firms and state-owned enterprises (SOEs). This session will explore how emergency measures for SOEs may create or exacerbate corruption risks that are frequent in the state-owned sector. Panelists will seek to identify how the state, as enterprise owner, guarantor and lender, can take steps to avoid irregular practices. During the session, the OECD will launch and draw from its latest tool for promoting integrity in the SOE sector: an Implementation Guide that accompanies the OECD Guidelines on Anti-Corruption and Integrity in State-Owned Enterprises.
