Crown enterprises are a type of crown corporation in Guelphia's state sector that compete in the private sector.

Function and role

A crown enterprise is a company registered under the terms of the Companies Act[1], and whose shareholders are Ministers of the Crown. The day-to-day management of the crown enterprise is conducted at arms length of the government, with a chief executive appointed by a board of directors just like any publicly listed company. As with others types of crown corporations, crown enterprises are not part of the Guelphian Civil Service, nor are they a crown statutory agency.
