Good Governance





Overcoming and innovative spirit


Welcome changes

The PEMC was established by the PEMC Act 2013 to supervise and evaluate the overall performance of the Public Enterprises. Although autonomous, the Commission reports directly to its parent ministry, the Ministry of Finance, Trade Investment and Economic Planning.


PEMC is governed by a Board of Commissioners whereby the Minister determines the appointments  as stipulated under Section 7 of the PEMC Act. The Commission is headed by the Chief Executive Officer whereby the appointment is determined by The President.
