Article publication date: 1 April 1992


The Singapore Public Sector Divestment Committee has recommended privatization of public enterprises, including profit‐making monopolies such as Telecom, airport, port authority and broadcasting. Reviews preparation to privatize Singapore Telecom. Examines Telecom′s diversification strategy to enhance its visibility and international competitiveness. By maintaining its impressive profitability record, Telecom can be assured of a favourable reception by domestic and foreign investors when its shares are floated in 1993. Being the first statutory board to be privatized, its transformation is closely observed by others in the pipeline.
