Finding Balance 2011: Benchmarking the Performance of State-Owned Enterprises in Fiji, Marshall Islands, Samoa, Solomon Islands, and Tonga
This study reviews the progress of SOE reform in Fiji, the Marshall Islands, Samoa, Solomon Islands, and Tonga. It articulates the benefits of reform and identifies successful strategies to inform future policy action.
This study looks at the processes of SOE reform in five countries, identifies what has or has not worked well, and highlights the key elements of successful action. While the primary focus is on the comparative financial performance of the five SOE portfolios, the study also looks at the empowering legislation, the monitoring framework, governance arrangements, and the extent and nature of parliamentary oversight. These factors all have an impact on the performance of the SOEs.
