One feels terribly uncomfortable at the idea that Government employee pensions are used to bail out State-owned Enterprises.— Dr Azar Jammine, Econometrix

Clearly, it is a political issue.— Dr Azar Jammine, Econometrix
A lot of the mess SOEs are in is because a lot of the leaders are put in managerial positions beyond their capacity and, in certain instances, are liable to be captured.— Dr Azar Jammine, Econometrix
A lot of capable people don’t end up leading these organisations because they are not politically connected.— Dr Azar Jammine, Econometrix
