10 April 2019 - The OECD Survey of Corporate Governance Frameworks in the Middle East and North Africa provides consolidated information on corporate governance in the region, building on the OECD Corporate Governance Factbook, which contains similar information on OECD and G20 countries. The Survey focuses on the corporate governance of listed companies and can serve as a useful resource for capital market regulators, stock exchanges, listed companies and investors. The Survey is structured around the key elements of the G20/OECD Principles of Corporate Governance. 

The MENA-OECD Competitiveness Programme was launched in 2016 at the request of MENA governments. The programme’s objective is to facilitate co-operation between the OECD and MENA region to promote policies for sustainable and inclusive growth. Since 2005, the Initiative has addressed regional needs and development priorities, and takes into account the region’s diversity by providing targeted policy support to participating jurisdictions, building on the OECD’s work methods of analysis, policy dialogue, exchange of good practices and capacity building for the implementation of reforms. The Programme works with Algeria, Bahrain, Djibouti, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, Oman, Palestinian Authority, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates and Yemen.
