The major public enterprises in Zimbabwe face many problems. The shortage of foreign exchange is the single most important obstacle facing the enterprises. Many companies also have a heavy debt burden and lack working capital. Maintenance and rehabilitation have been neglected for many years, and as a result, enterprises are burdened with a depleted capital stock and several operate at very low capacity levels. All public enterprises operate at controlled prices, which constrain their profitability.
