A standard definition of "Government Business Enterprise" is that it "is an organization that has all of the following characteristics:

  • It has been delegated the financial and operational authority to carry on a business."
  • Its principal function is to engage in commercial activities within the private sector, yet it is controlled by government.
  • It is a separate legal entity with the power to contract in its own name and that can sue and be sued.

We also call them "Parastatals".Their managers must learn and be guided by principles and standards for responsible business conduct.
