BUSINESS STRUCTURE

PRIVATIZATION
Privatization means selling state-owned and controlled business organizations to investors in the private sector. The policy of privatization includes other features apart from the outright sale of state assets, for example making state-owned schools, hospitals and local authorities contract out many services to private business. However the main aspect of privatization is the transfer of ownership of nationalized (state-owned) industries into the private sector by creating public limited companies.
