--- Advertisement ---


A STATE-OWNED ENTERPRISE (SOE) is a legal entity that undertakes commercial activities on behalf of the state, its owner. The legal status of SOEs varies from being a part of the government to being stock companies with the state as a regular stockholder . The defining characteristics of SOEs are that they have a distinct legal form and are established to operate in commercial affairs and commercial activities. While they may also have public policy objectives (e.g., a state railway company may aim to make transportation more accessible), SOEs should be differentiated from other forms of government agencies or state entities established to pursue purely nonfinancial objectives.

Government-owned corporations are common with natural monopolies and infrastructure, such as railways and telecommunications, strategic goods and services (mail, weapons), natural resources and energy, politically sensitive business, broadcasting, banking, demerit goods (e.g. alcoholic beverages ), and merit goods (healthcare).

TERMINOLOGY

SOEs are also called state-owned company, state-owned entity, state enterprise, publicly owned corporation, government business enterprise, crown corporation, government-owned corporation, government-sponsored enterprises , commercial government agency, state-privatised industry public sector undertaking, or parastatal.

DEFINITIONS

SOEs can be fully owned or partially owned by government. As a definitional issue, it is difficult to determine categorically what level of state ownership would qualify an entity to be considered as state-owned since governments can also own regular stock , without implying any special interference. As an example, the China Investment Corporation
Corporation
agreed in 2007 to acquire a 10% interest in the global investment bank Morgan Stanley , but it is unlikely that it would qualify the latter as a government-owned corporation. Government-owned or state-run enterprises are often the result of corporatization , a process in which government agencies and departments are re-organized as semiautonomous corporate entities, sometimes with partial shares listed on stock exchanges .

The term 'government-linked company' (GLC) is sometimes used to refer to corporate entities that may be private or public (listed on a stock exchange) where an existing government owns a stake using a holding company . There are two main definitions of GLCs are dependent on the proportion of the corporate entity a government owns. One definition purports that a company is classified as a GLC if a government owns an effective controlling interest (more than 50%), while the second definition suggests that any corporate entity that has a government as a shareholder is a GLC.

In the Commonwealth realms , particularly Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom, country-wide SOEs often use the style "Crown corporation", or " Crown entities ". Examples of Crown corporations include the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation
Corporation
and Air Canada
Canada
before the latter underwent privatization . Cabinet ministers (ministers of the Crown) often control the shares in such public corporations.

At the level of local government, territorial or other authorities may set up similar enterprises which are sometimes referred to as "local authority trading enterprises" (LATEs). Many local authorities establish services, such as water supply as separate corporations or as a business unit of the authority.

ECONOMIC SECTORS

SOEs often operate in sectors in which there is a natural monopoly , or the government has a strategic interest. However, government ownership of industry corporations is common.

Nationalization also forcibly converts a private corporation into a state-owned enterprise.

In most OPEC countries, the governments own the oil companies operating on their soil. A notable example is the Saudi national oil company , Saudi Aramco
Saudi Aramco
, which the Saudi government bought in 1988, changing its name from Arabian American Oil Company to Saudi Arabian Oil Company. The Saudi government also owns and operates Saudi Arabian Airlines , and owns 70% of SABIC as well as many other companies. They are, however, being privatized gradually.

EUROPE

In Western Europe
Western Europe
and Eastern Europe
Eastern Europe
there was a massive nationalization throughout the 20th century, especially after World War II . In Eastern Europe, governments dominated by Communists adopted the Soviet model. Governments in Western Europe, both left and right of centre, saw state intervention as necessary to rebuild economies shattered by war. Government
Government
control over so-called natural monopolies like industry was the norm. Typical sectors included telecommunications , power , petroleum , railways , airports , airlines , public transport , health care , postal services and sometimes banks . Many large industrial corporations were also nationalized or created as Government
Government
corporations, including among many British Steel Corporation
Corporation
, Statoil and Irish Sugar . Starting in the late 1970s and accelerating through the 1980s and 1990s many of these corporations were privatized , though many still remain wholly or partially owned by the respective governments.

A state-run enterprise needs to be distinguished from an ordinary limited liability corporation owned by the state. For example, in Finland, state-run enterprises (liikelaitos) are governed by a separate act. Even though responsible for their own finances, they cannot be declared bankrupt ; the state answers for the liabilities. Stocks of the corporation are not sold and loans have to be government-approved, as they are government liabilities. In contrast, the state also owns controlling interest in ordinary limited liability corporations. A state-run enterprise is technically not always a corporation, it might also be a separate state entity, or simply a governmental agency acting as an enterprise, perhaps having its own budget. Conversely, the state can directly fund unprofitable business, such as railway services to remote areas, regardless of whether the operator is a private corporation.

As of 2011, 35% of business activity and 43% of profits in the People's Republic of China
People's Republic of China
resulted from companies in which the state owned a majority interest. Critics, such as The New York Times, have alleged that China's state-owned companies are a vehicle for corruption by the families of ruling party leaders who have sometimes amassed fortunes while managing them.

Hong Kong

In the postwar years, Hong Kong's colonial government operated under a laissez-faire economic philosophy called positive non-interventionism . Hence Crown corporations did not play as significant a role in the development of the territory as in many other British territories.

The Mass Transit Railway Corporation
Corporation
(MTRC) was formed as a Crown corporation, mandated to operate under "prudent commercial principles", in 1975. The Kowloon-Canton Railway , operated under a government department, was corporatised in 1982 to imitate the success of MTRC (see KCR Corporation
Corporation
). MTRC was privatised in 2000 although the Hong Kong Government
Government
is still the majority shareholder. KCR was operationally merged with MTR in 2007.

Examples of present-day statutory bodies include the Airport Authority , responsible for running the Chek Lap Kok Airport
Airport
, or the Housing Authority , which provides housing to about half of Hong Kong residents.

AFRICA

KENYA

Parastatals in Kenya, partly from a lack of expertise and endemic corruption, have largely inhibited economic development. In 1979, a presidential commission went as far as saying that they constituted "a serious threat to the economy", and, by 1989, they had still not furthered industrialization or fostered the development of a Black business class.

Several Kenyan SOEs have been privatized since the 1980s, with mixed results.

BRAZIL

State-owner enterprises are divided into public enterprises (empresa pública) and mixed-economy companies (sociedade de economia mista). The public enterprises are subdivided into two categories: individual – with its own assets and capital owned by the Union – and plural companies – whose assets are owned by multiple government agencies and the Union, which have the majority of the voting interest. Caixa Econômica Federal , Correios , Embrapa , and BNDES are examples of public enterprises. Mixed-economy companies are enterprises with the majority of stocks owned by the government, but that also have stocks owned by the private sector and usually have their shares traded on stock exchanges . Banco do Brasil , Petrobras
Petrobras
, Sabesp , and Eletrobras are examples of mixed-economy companies.

Beginning in the 1990s, the central government of Brazil launched a privatization program inspired by the Washington Consensus . Public-owned companies such as Vale do Rio Doce , Telebrás , CSN , and Usiminas (most of them mixed-economy companies) were transferred to the private sector as part of this policy.

Ministers of the Crown often control the shares in such public corporations, while parliament both sets out the laws that create and bind Crown corporations and sets their annual budgets.

Foreign SOEs are welcome to invest in Canada: in Fall 2013, British Columbia and Alberta signed agreements overseas to promote foreign direct investment in Canada. The Investment Canada

The residential mortgage borrowing segment is by far the largest of the borrowing segments in which the GSEs operate. Together, the three mortgage finance GSEs ( Fannie Mae , Freddie Mac
Freddie Mac
, and the 11 Federal Home Loan Banks ) have several trillion dollars of on-balance sheet assets . The federal government possesses warrants which, if exercised, would allow them to take a 79.9% ownership share in the companies.

Chartered And Owned Corporations

The federal government chartered and owned corporations are a separate set of corporations chartered and owned by the federal government, which operate to provide public services, but unlike the federal agencies ( Environmental Protection Agency , Bureau of Indian Affairs ), or the federal independent commissions (e.g., the Federal Communications Commission , the Nuclear Regulatory Commission , etc.), they have a separate legal personality from the federal government, providing the highest level of political independence. They sometimes receive federal budgetary appropriations, but some also have independent sources of revenue. These include:

Federal-government-acquired Corporations

The federal-government-acquired corporations are a separate set of corporations that were originally chartered and created by an entity other than the U.S. federal government, but that were, at some point, nationalised by the federal government. Most of these are corporations temporarily in possession of the government as a result of a seizure of property of a debtor to the government, such as a delinquent taxpayer; usually, these are awaiting liquidation at auction, and most are too small to note. However, there are also corporations that the federal government has nationalised to ensure the continued provision of an essential service or services (such as the federal government's nationalisation of the Alaska Northern Railroad in 1914 and Tanana Valley Railroad in 1917, now both part of the still-federally-owned Alaska Railroad

, and, on a larger scale, the nationalisation of all U.S. railroads from 1917 to 1920 under the United States
United States
Railroad Administration ), as well as nationalization of the northeastern freight railroads under Conrail
Conrail
(1976).

Other Types In The United States

There exists a second level of sovereign government in the United States after the federal government: those of the several states of the United States. The vast majority of non-governmental corporations in the United States
United States
are chartered by the states of the United States. This includes most charitable corporations, non-profit corporations, and for-profit corporations. States also have the power to charter corporations that they own, control, or are responsible for the regulation and finance of. These include municipal corporations and state chartered and owned corporations. State government-chartered and -owned corporations are numerous and provide public services. Examples include North Dakota Mill and Elevator and South Dakota Public Broadcasting . Generally speaking, a statute passed by a state legislature specifically sets up a government-owned company in order to undertake a specific public purpose with public funds or public property. Lotteries in the United States
United States
are also run by government corporations, such as the Georgia Lottery Corporation
Corporation
and many others.

There also exists a third level of sovereign government in the United States: the sovereignty of the Native American tribal governments . As such, the Native American (including Alaska Native ) tribal governments have the power to charter corporations and undertake public undertakings that might benefit their tribal citizens, Native Americans being not only citizens of their particular tribes, but also citizens of their respective U.S. states, and of the United States
United States
. For example, a tribal council could establish a public service broadcaster along the lines of Ireland's Raidió Teilifís Éireann
Raidió Teilifís Éireann
, partially fund it with a television licence on tribal land, and make up the difference through advertising, thereby making it both a means of uniting the tribe and giving it a voice and a commercial venture by the tribe.

The Alaska Natives are particularly advanced in using their tribal sovereignty to incorporate corporations that are owned by and for the benefit of their tribal citizens and often compete in highly competitive economic sectors through the Alaska Native Regional Corporations . The Native American tribes in the 48 contiguous states often use their sovereignty and their ability to charter to compete using regulatory easements; for instance, Native American tribal corporations often trade in goods that are highly taxed in surrounding states (such as tobacco ), or engage in activities that surrounding states have (for reasons of public policy) forbidden, such as the operation of casinos or other gaming establishments. Most of these endeavors have proven very successful for Native American tribal sovereigns and their tribal corporations, bringing wealth into the hands of Native Americans.

URUGUAY

Uruguay
Uruguay
had the first welfare state of Latin America
Latin America
under the presidency of José Batlle y Ordoñez in 1904. Government-owned corporations monopolize services such as electricity ( UTE
UTE
), land-line communications ( Antel ) and water (OSE). Antel competes with private corporations in the cell-phone lines and international telephony markets. In 1992, under the presidency of Luis Alberto Lacalle , the government attempted to privatize all its companies, following the neoliberal Washington Consensus . However, a referendum won by 75% of the population kept the companies in the hands of the government. By the end of his term, president Lacalle alleged that he had achieved a successful modernization of the companies, which had made them more efficient.

OCEANIA

AUSTRALIA

In Australia the predominant term used for SOEs is GOVERNMENT BUSINESS ENTERPRISE (GBE). Various Australian states also have GBEs, especially with respect to the provision of water and sewerage, and many state-based GBEs were privatized in some states during the last decade of the twentieth century. Former Commonwealth SOEs include Telstra
Telstra
, established in the 1970s as Telecom Australia . Telstra, now Australia's leading telecommunications company, was privatized in 1997 by the government of John Howard . As of June 2010 Telstra
Telstra
owned a majority of the copper wire infrastructure in Australia (the rest is owned by Optus ) and is pending sale to its former parent, the Australian government, for a non-binding amount of 11 billion Australian dollars, as ducts in the copper wire tunnels are needed to install the fiber optic cable. The Commonwealth Bank
Bank
, as its name indicates, was also founded as public company before later being privatized.

In Victoria many GBEs were sold in the 1990s to reduce the state's level of debt. The State Electricity Commission of Victoria and the Gas and Fuel Corporation
Corporation
were the best-known government enterprises to be disaggregated and sold.
