October 8-9, 2005, Liyuan Hotel, Chongqing, China
China has now the largest number of State Owned Enterprises (SOEs) and state holding enterprises (SHEs) in the world. Chongqing City has the larges number of SOEs and SHEs in China. Corporate Governance and reform of SOEs/SHEs is thus vital for China. China can benefit a lot from the European experience. One panel co-sponsored by c-law.org will be devoted to the past and present situation in the in the former socialist countries that have recently joined the European Union. This contribution will be particularly interesting as all these countries show a significant and quite recent track-record of the ownership transformation and enterprise restructuring.
