Delays in the programme are incurred because of its centralist design, which, however, has a series of features impeding the economic objective of the programme (enterprise restructuring): the state is not sufficiently constrained and there are no clear-cut incentives for restructuring. Additionally the peculiar construction of NIFs makes them susceptible to internal conflicts. How far these failures are resolved by the emerging ownership and control structure cannot be determined conclusively. However there are some indications of more effective forms of corporate governance: management firms are emerging as NIF shareholders and there are signs of an emerging market for corporate control.
