By the beginning of 1947, the Government, in compliance with its policy of gradual suppression of the private economic sector, first liquidated large private enterprises and then medium and small by the end of the following year. As early as 1948 it became obvious that state enterprises, in the form of state-owned and co-operative companies, were less organized and efficient than the private ones had been.
