State-owned enterprises in the Middle East and North Africa : engines of development and competitiveness? by OECD Publishing( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

State-owned enterprises (SOEs) are an important feature of the economic landscape in the Middle East and North Africa region and yet, their contribution to the local economies has not been subject to a systematic investigation. SOEs in the region are generally perceived as inefficient and subject to sub-optimal governance arrangements but at the same time, and somewhat paradoxically, they are often charged developmental mandates that typically go beyond their stated commercial objectives. This phenomenon owes to the historically prominent role of the state in the economic development in the re

This book provides an overview of the underlying problems in delivering services to rural regions. It contains a conceptual

Forum mondial sur la transparence et l'echange de renseignements a des fins fiscales by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( )

16 editions published between 2015 and 2018 in French and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le Forum mondial sur la transparence et l ́change de renseignements à des fins fiscales est l nceinte multilatérale au sein de laquelle le travail en matière de transparence fiscale et d ́change de renseignements est mené par plus de 120 juridictions participant, sur un pied d ́galité, aux travaux du Forum mondial. Le Forum mondial est chargé de la surveillance approfondie et de l xamen par les pairs de la mise en œuvre des standards en matière de transparence et d ́change de renseignements en matière fiscale. Ces standards sont essentiellement reflétés dans le Modèle d ccord d ́change de renseignements en matière fiscale et ses commentaires publiés en 2002 par l CDE et dans l rticle 26 du Modèle de convention fiscale concernant le revenu et la fortune de l CDE et ses commentaires, tels que mis à jour en 2004. Ces standards ont aussi été repris dans le Modèle de convention fiscale des Nations Unies. Les standards prévoient l ́change de renseignements sur demande des informations vraisemblablement pertinentes pour l dministration et l pplication de la législation fiscale interne de la partie requérante. La pêche aux renseignements n st pas autorisée mais tous les renseignements vraisemblablement pertinents doivent être fournis, y compris les renseignements bancaires et les renseignements détenus par des agents fiduciaires, sans tenir compte de l xistence d n intérêt fiscal national. Tous les membres du Forum mondial, ainsi que les juridictions identifiées par le Forum mondial comme pertinentes pour ses travaux, seront examinés. Ce processus est réalisé en deux phases. L xamen de phase 1 évalue la qualité du cadre juridique et réglementaire des juridictions en matière d ́change de renseignements alors que l xamen de phase 2 se concentre sur la mise en œuvre pratique de ce cadre. Certains membres du Forum mondial font l bjet d n examen combiné - phase 1 et phase 2. Le but final vise à aider les juridictions à mettre effectivement en œuvre les standards internationaux en matière de transparence et d ́change de renseignements en matière fiscale
