Leveraging public-private partnerships for service delivery

From 2010 onwards, the Government of Punjab set up a range of government-owned public sector companies (approximately 56 companies registered under Section 42 of the Companies Act 2017) to deliver specific public services such as waste management, public transport, parking regulation, infrastructure development, and skills training among others. This project attempted to address some of the confusion created by the media trial of the 56 Section 42 companies by presenting case studies on the performance of two successful public-sector companies and the reasons for their success.
