autonomous companies/ independent companies


Explanation:
Actually, I'm not sure of my answer. It's just a guess. I think it could be autonomous companies or independent companies. According to the Bookshelf Dict. autonomous means Independent of the laws of another state or government; self-governing. b. Of or relating to a self-governing entity.
