In recent years, many developing countries in the Asian and Pacific region have been confronted with increasing difficulties in mobilizing the financial resources required to meet development targets. As a result, renewed attention has been focused on ways of intensifying domestic resource mobilization. In addition to the emphasis laid on the mobilization of the savings of the household and corporate sectors and on efforts to increase government savings, the role of public enterprises is receiving close attention. In several countries where the size of public enterprises is significant, internal resources generated by such enterprises could make an important contribution to domestic resource mobilization. This chapter seeks to assess the role of public enterprises in the mobilization of financial resources in those countries and to highlight some of the major issues pertaining to generating internal resources.
