Interactive planning and decision-making processes are needed to support private sector participation in urban governance, and to co-ordinate this participation with municipalities. Other innovative collaborations include private sector provision of managerial and technical training and support to help municipalities improve the strategic management of urban areas ibid. Research undertaken by this author and Dr Matthew Dornan of the Development Policy Centre during 2013 sought to rectify this deficit and established the following: The Pacific experience with pooling of services has been one of mixed fortunes. Private sector entities in the Pacific island region have small management teams often the senior management is one person so there is limited capacity and tolerance for accommodating multiple teams of consultants scoping, designing, monitoring and evaluating the apparently same thing. Therefore, it is the task of public sector to make adequate investment in them so as to remove bottlenecks to economic development.
For purchasers, key concerns are assuring regularity of supply both in terms of quantity and quality and this means that opportunities for establishing aggregators exist and can be further explored and developed. This theme of performance information cuts across the three dimensions that we see as key to state sector performance. Unless agriculture is mordernised substantially, industrial expansion is likely to proceed at a slow speed due to lack of purchasing power in the hands of the bulk of population. The concept of donors bilateral and multilateral engaging with and developing the private sector in the Pacific is not new and the space is quite crowded. This is true even though the commercial profitability of the private sector is being rated high. We must do this to limit the drag of taxes on the economy, as well as to play our part in lifting national savings and productivity growth. Journal of International Development 15 8 : 1092-1094.
It is already apparent that transaction costs are high in the Pacific. They also sought to provide assistance to the poorest families through the provision of micro-finance. As is quite well known, developing countries are caught up in vicious circle of poverty. Today many commodities starting from basic drugs to highly advanced equipments are manufactured in the public sector, which previously used to be imported from abroad. In this respect the public sector is playing a crucial role. Partnering with the private sector could: extend services into poorer or informal communities, provide safer work places, promote adoption of non-discriminatory employment policies, help the poor access credit, and boost investment in low-cost housing.
Public sector exports also include consumer goods. Industrialization is thus inseparable from substantial sustained economic development , because it is both a consequence of higher incomes and a means of higher productivity. During the Sixth Plan, the contribution of public enterprises to the central exchequer was to the tune of Rs. Nationalisation of the existing enterprises has been generally resorted to where the public interest was involved or where it was imperative to put the industry on sound footing and regulation and control were not found sufficiently effective. Despite this, New Zealand still has a significant chunk of spending in areas that are unlikely to be growth-enhancing, like on social protection or on culture and recreation. Better and less costly government interventions effectiveness and efficiency Improving the effectiveness and efficiency of government interventions is about both prioritising spending to its highest value use and also sharpening incentives to use existing resources well.
This implies that sphere of public sector should not remain merely confined to the infrastructure and basic heavy industries but if it is to check the emergence of monopolistic conditions it should include investment in and production of those consumer goods industries which due to technological considerations require large-scale production. But growth in social spending then overtook these positive debt dynamics and core Crown spending increased again. States like Orissa, Assam, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh etc. Development of ancillary industries : Establishment of a few big public enterprises is not enough to unleash forces of industrial development in an area. Capital formation : -The public sector contributes to capital formation by mobilisation of savings through public sector banks. This clearly shows that economic planning and expansion of public sector alone can guarantee quick economic growth in less developed countries like India.
For example, the Defence White Paper and Value for Money review underpins a focus on moving resources to the front line and into the capabilities that we will need in the future. The public sector has grown in size over the years both in terms of number of units as well as in production. Central Public Sector Undertakings: There were 236 Central public sector undertakings excluding banks in 1996-97. With the growing liberalisation of Indian economy in recent years, the private sector is being assigned with much greater responsibility in various spheres of economic activities. The Government has made sustained efforts to break the vicious circle of poverty and undevelopment by setting up public sector enterprises or by nationalizing certain key industries. However, it is hard to assess this impact either in any one country or across the Pacific island region.
The industrial base of the economy is now considerably strengthened with the development of public sector industries in various fields like—iron and steel, coal, heavy engineering, heavy electrical machinery, petroleum and natural gas, fertilizers, chemicals, drugs etc. Domestic markets An issue that is often overlooked within the context of this debate is the significance of domestic markets to economic growth. The public enterprises aim at achieving equality of opportunity and reduction of economic inequalities. The Review of Spending on Policy Advice will help government to ensure high professional standards and better quality policy advice. This means we need to make hard spending choices. Its dominant position in the financial field is intended to control and guide the private sector, wherever necessary. Better use of our physical assets The same principles that apply to spending and regulation also apply to managing state assets.
India is still primarily an agricultural country and the distribution of income depends mainly on the distribution of agricultural property. The policy of dispersal of Industries aims at removing regional disparities. There is a risk that our state sector has become accustomed over recent years to an environment of surpluses. Private sector investments are also depending on these infrastructural facilities developed by the public sector of the country. Public enterprises like Hindustan Antibiotics Ltd.
