Finding Balance Making State-Owned Enterprises Work in Fiji, Samoa, and Tonga Volume II: Comparative Review of the Legal, Governance and Monitoring Frameworks
Asian Development Bank | June 2009
This report examines the legal, governance and monitoring frameworks supporting the stateowned enterprise (SOE) sectors in Fiji, Samoa and Tonga. These frameworks guide the operations of the SOEs and enable their shareholders to monitor performance. Where the frameworks are incomplete or inadequately implemented, SOE performance tends to suffer. This is illustrated in the case of Fiji, Samoa and Tonga, as well as in many other countries around the world. This report therefore focuses on the comparative effectiveness of each country’s (i) legislation pertaining to SOEs (and success at implementation); (ii) mechanisms in place for monitoring SOE performance; and (iii) governance practices that inform and characterize the operation of SOEs. The recommendations provided in each section of the report, if implemented, should directly contribute to improved performance of the SOE portfolios in Fiji, Samoa and Tonga.
