Workshop: Efficient Management of State-Owned Enterprises

Event | 31 May - 1 June 2017 Almaty, Kazakhstan


The reform of state-owned enterprises (SOEs) is an urgent priority for all Asian countries. Asian SOEs suffer from declining performance, rising debt, and serious corruption. SOEs are not generally market-competitive and lack efficient coordination and management, requiring sustained efforts to ensure improved performance. Since key infrastructure, logistics, and energy industries in developing Asian countries are SOEs, their efficiency is critical for these countries’ growth.


  • Provide an overview of challenges associated with efficient management of state-owned enterprises and suggest reforms to tackle those challenges
  • Introduce participants to contemporary challenges facing state-owned enterprises in Asia and promote solutions to these challenges
