Abstract

Supply chain consists of different entities with various responsibilities, but all of them follow one purpose: reaching to high satisfaction of their customers to maximize their profit individually and supply chain profit as a whole. Each entity in each echelon has an ownership, whether governmental or private. Whether the ownership affects supply chain performance, its profit and other things are subjects that are discussed in this chapter by introducing privatization and its effects and challenges. Regarding living in a changing and competitive world, governments tend to reduce size of fiscal deficit, improve efficiency, and develop capital market to be viable and powerful in such world but, most of them are affected by weak performance of public or state-owned enterprises. State-owned enterprises domination was an obstacle for reaching these situations for most countries, so they approached to divest government of state-owned enterprises domination. Concerning “Open doors” policy, liberalization and commercialization, the doors were really opened slowly to private sectors for privatization. Nowadays, the main question is “How we should privatize our tasks rather than whether privatization or not?”
