Transparency and Disclosure

Transparency and disclosure are even more important for SOE’s than for other companies since it is important to show that political control is being exercised at arms length and to make their goals clear to the public. By reporting to their ownership entities, the Parliament or the general public, SOEs increase their transparency and accountability.
