It examines the principal stages of a decade of reforms, including commercialization, corporatization, and restructuring undertaken primarily over the period from 1984 to 1987, fundamental changes in the approach to management and accountability, begun in 1988 and 1989, and more recent initiatives which have perpetuated and consolidated the reforms.
