This Article argues that the initiatives adopted in order to make parastatals more efficient are inadequate and will not realize the intended objectives unless the chief executives of parastatals are hired on a competitive basis, given more autonomy and the government is committed not only to designing performance contracts that set realistic standards, but also enforcing them strictly. It also contends that there is a need to streamline the multiple regulations that govern parastatals and reform the corporate regulatory framework of the private sector in order to raise standards of corporate governance and, as a result, ensure that the privatized services are managed prudently.
