South-east Asian state enterprise will change markedly

Tuesday, July 9, 2019

Subject

Reforms to state-owned enteprises across South-east Asia.

Significance

South-east Asian governments are under increasing pressure to reform state-owned enterprises (SOEs). Approaches to making them more efficient vary across the region.

Impacts

  • South-east Asian SOEs will benefit from infrastructure projects linked to China’s Belt and Road Initiative.
  • Restrictions on SOEs will likely be included in future bilateral and multilateral trade agreements involving the region’s governments.
  • Malaysia’s use of an anti-bribery management system for some of its SOEs could set a new standard for state enterprise in South-east Asia.
