Ownership policy and steering
State ownership policy is active, open and pragmatic. The State develops its shareholdings using the tools of a responsible owner and aims for a long-term increase in ownership value. The premises for the State’s ownership policy are outlined in the Government Programme, which is implemented through an ownership policy resolution that is renewed each government term.
The Ownership Steering Department of the Prime Minister’s Office is responsible for preparing and implementing decisions related to ownership policy. The tasks of the Department include preparing and implementing the State’s ownership policy throughout the Government and steering the companies that are the responsibility of the Prime Minister’s Office.
The main tools in state ownership consist of formulating an ownership strategy independently and adopting sound corporate governance practices.
