The phrase public enterprises in the Production Sector may sound ambiguous to many readers. In this text it is meant to include all public enterprises that are involved in the production of agricultural, industrial and other products or goods. This will include factories, mines, farms of all types, fisheries and all other public enterprises that produce finished or semi - finished goods or products for local consumption or for export. Public enterprises are broadly divided into two groups. The first group includes all those in the Production Sector and the second group includes all those in the Service Sector. The paper will deal primarily with those enterprises which are in the first group.
