Sri Lanka's loss making SOEs slashed, but 50 in the red: Fin Min

Mar 15, 2017 16:17 PM GMT+0530 | 0 Comment(s)

ECONOMYNEXT - Sri Lanka's new administration has reduced losses at state owned enterprises and statutory agencies, but a quarter of them are still making losses, Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake said.

Sri Lanka has 403 state entities and around 20 subsidiaries, of which around 200 were making losses, but the current administration had reduced them to about 50, Karunanayake said, after signing 'Statements of Corporate Intent' with the largest five SOEs.

Sri Lanka's state entities include corporations, banks, academic institutions and publicly traded firm in which the state owns large stakes. 

Finance Ministry data showed that around 50 larger SOEs monitored by the public enterprises department of the finance ministry had increased profits after deducting losses from 42.2 billion rupees in 2014 to 64.9 billion rupees in 2016.

In the first eight months of 2017, profits rose to 123.6 billion rupees, with 50 billion rupees coming from Ceylon Petroleum Corporation, with low oil prices. Oil prices, however have since risen.

The largest losses that de-stabilize the country are usually made at Ceylon Petroleum Corporation and Ceylon Electricity Board, which do not market price energy due to political pressure.

Karunanayake said the Statements of Corporate Intent, which were similar corporate planning exercises carried out at private firms will be extended to other SOEs in the future.

The SCI's set targets and goals, against which performance could be measured.

Analysts say energy subsidies involving 'government bearing the burden' is perhaps the greatest economic fraud perpetrated on the people by the rulers.

Sri Lanka's rulers subsidize petroleum and electricity with bank credit, and the central bank then prints money to keep interest rates down, leading to balance of payments crises and currency collapses, which pushes up not only energy prices but also food.

After the currency collapses, energy prices have to be hiked (in rupee terms) to levels higher than if prices were raised under a formula.

Per person consumption of energy rises with income with the rich consuming much more energy than the poor. (Colombo/Mar15/2017)

This is commendable actions by this govt. There're only few actions of this govt which has been good. So should applaud these kind of achievements,

Now Dont sell off the profitable efficient companies like Waters Edge Hilton and Lanka Hospital. Sell unprofitable non essential and non strategical entities like sugar factories and Ceylon Hotel corporation.

I have no idea about Lcem performance. If they're not doing well and not a essential business entity with social effect, then it should be sold.

To turn around companies like Sri Lankan Airlines it should be partially sold off like 51/49% depending on the liabilities they're willing to take on.
