Slovenia Re-Launches Privatization of 15 State-Owned Companies
Slovenia has announced it is re-launching the privatization of 15 state-owned enterprises before the new government assumes office.
The plan was temporarily frozen due to the parliamentary elections, according to reports of the BGNES news agency.
The outgoing center-left coalition of Prime Minister Alenka Bratusek put the privatization program on hold to allow the new government to review the process.
The sale of state-owned companies is a key part of the stabilization plan for Slovenia's public finances and the economy after the government spent over EUR 3 B on bailing out banks last year.
