Slovenia ‘eyes more privatisations’

-

Slovenia will complete its planned privatisations by the end of the year and is considering selling off more state-run companies, Prime Minister Alenka Bratusek told a German newspaper on Monday.

"We're making good progress with the sales negotiations," Bratusek told business daily Handelsblatt.

"There will be no delays. We will have concluded the sales by the end of the year."

Slovenia, which scraped together funds to bail out its banks in late 2013, is currently in the process of selling 13 companies and a bank.

Beyond this privatisation programme, "we're currently looking at whether to sell more public companies or stakes in them to private investors," Bratusek told the newspaper, adding that a list of new firms would be ready in two to three months.
