To further reduce the costs of policy uncertainty for the private sector, the Government's second priority should be to make the deregulation of the private sector much more effective, giving it the flexibility to make unfettered business decisions relating to investments, production, trade, international payments, and employment. The Government's third priority should be to enter into long-term arrangements with domestic and overseas private investors in infrastructure and the utilities to promote their entry, enhance competition, raise efficiency, and improve service quality; in the shorter term, the Government must rapidly complete the long-delayed privatization of state-owned enterprises in the manufacturing sector.

Faster trade liberalization would go far toward increasing the private sector's confidence in the reforms. To further reduce the costs of policy uncertainty for the private sector, the Government's second priority should be to make the deregulation of the private sector much more effective, giving it the flexibility to make unfettered business decisions relating to investments, production, trade, international payments, and employment.
