Throughout its long and rich history of thirty-five years, the International Center for Promotion of Enterprises (ICPE) has been always recognized as a key international institution focused on fostering research activities on public enterprises. Therefore, as the leading intergovernmental organization in the area of PSE, ICPE strives to gather eminent PSE experts, policymakers and successful businessmen, highest officials of international organisations, diplomatic corps and representatives of media to discuss on PSE open issues both from public and private point of view and bring purposeful conclusions with tangible outcomes.

The topics to be discussed at the Symposium will be:

  • Role of the PSE in the country development.
  • PSE - private sector dialogue and corporate social responsibility.
  • Case studies of PSE' management practices.

The objectives of the Symposium are:

  • to raise awareness of all concerned stakeholders on the importance of the public-private dialogue for overcoming the difficulties with economic, public and political nature of PSE activities;
  • to analyze the PSE corporate governance and social responsibility policy frameworks aiming to identify best PSE practices as benchmarks for evaluation;
  • to influence policy making by providing opinions and conclusions about repositioning of public sector enterprises as a service global welfare and human development improvement.
