Have you ever wondered: Why do performance problems at state-owned enterprises never seem to get fixed, and what can be done to make a difference?

State Owned Enterprises (SOEs) within Trinidad and Tobago operate in over 12 critical sectors of the economy and contribute significantly to employment. Their operations and performance have an impact on government finances, the everyday life of citizens within Trinidad & Tobago and on the competitiveness of the rest of the economy.

Directors and Officers of these entities have a significant influence on the performance of these enterprises.

Join us and Mr. Richard Frederick, global SOEs governance expert as we share more about a Way Forward for SOEs through better governance. 

Mr. Frederick has spent many years working on the governance of state-owned enterprises (SOEs). He is one of the Principal Authors of the OECD Principles of Corporate Governance and has contributed to international standards including the OECD Guidelines on the Governance of State-owned Enterprises (the only international standard on SOE governance).

Mr. Frederick has assessed SOEs governance practices in Panama and is currently evaluating the governance framework for SOEs in Costa Rica in the context of its accession to the OECD. He has also developed tools to help assess the governance practices of energy sector SOEs in Trinidad and Tobago
