Abstract

This paper begins by examining the policy framework of state-owned enterprises arising from the constitution, the social and economic policies of the Government, and policies of specific Government departments relating to specific sectors or enterprises. This is followed by a discussion of the regulatory framework of state-owned enterprises, with a focus on those entities regulated by government departments at different levels, including those subject to the Companies Act, and regulatory frameworks and bodies for specific state-owned enterprises or sectors.
