Bahamians ‘have first rights’ on all outsourcing opportunities at the Bahamas Telecommunications Company

Dino Rolle, the Bahamas Communications and Public Officers Union’s (BCPOU) president, is urging the prime minister “to ensure Bahamians ‘have first rights’ on all outsourcing opportunities at the Bahamas Telecommunications Company (BTC) if downsizing continues. (…) Mr. Rolle said he made his requests at the side of yesterday’s meeting between the prime minister and multiple trade union leaders, as he warned that the BCPOU will ‘not sit on our hands for ever’ if its grievances are not resolved.”

Rethinking the Ethiopian Privatization

Minga Negash, Seid Hassan, Abu Girma and Ezana Kebede have made a case for “Rethinking the Ethiopian Privatization,” focused on state owned enterprises. “Privatization in a networked or captured economy of course transfers public assets in disguised and opaque ways to those who are already connected. Privatization without institutional reforms may only relieve the government from temporary illiquidity but does neither affect the efficiency nor make the market contestable nor prevents throwing away public assets at questionable prices.”)
