There is often an inadequate understanding or erroneous impression of the role of the government in the management of the public sector. It has to be clarified that it not that of a fifth wheel in the total setup. It is complementary to the functions of the management of the public sector corporations and, at the same time, effective and consonant with discharging its obligation of accountability of the public sector. It is also the government’s primary responsibility to ensure that the public sector units are run in accordance with the overall government policies, objectives an goals set for the undertakings and that they continue to improve their performance. It must, therefore, prescribe the yardsticks for judging their performance and must have the necessary in flow of information to monitor and evaluate their progress to predetermined indices. In order to do so, government has rightly retained the right to appoint the chief executives on the Board of Directors of public sectors companies. Furthermore, it has its nominee director on the Board to ensure that important policy decisions conform to government policies.
Likewise, it is for the government to formulate policies of a national character and it has to have an effective say in the overall policies of labour relations, in the matter of wages and incentives and in the system and modalities of recruitment, research and development, import and transfer of technology and so on. But all this is not to take on itself the role of management in these companies but to help and supplement their efforts within the overall national policies.
It is in this context, drawing on my own experience in government in so far as the Department of the heavy industry is concerned, that we took a decision to professionalize the management of the public sector undertakings within our purview, and at the same time giving them a reasonably long time to prove their performance, and thus, giving them a sense of stability and involvement. We also set up a management information system in our department to accord with our functions and difficulties could be anticipated or detected in time for remedial measures rather than be confined to post-mortem. I am glad to say that the present working relationship between the public sector undertakings and the government is such that each one understands, appreciate and respects the other’s role and responsibilities and it has given rise to a mutual feeling of trust and inter-dependence. The public sector units have no occasion to say that directives are issued by the government sitting in any ivory tower. They have the confidence that their difficulties and problems are appreciated and they can always look to the government for such legitimate assistance as they may require.
