What is the difference between public companies and public sector?

Public companies are those businesses owned by individuals (and not by a government). If a public company is a corporation whose stock is traded on a stock exchange it is said that the stock is publicly traded or that the company is a publicly-traded corporation.

Public sector refers to government-owned organizations and government-provided services.
