Deputy Prime Minister for the Economy Ivan Mikloš said on November 30 he expected the state to net 40 billion crowns ($940 million) from next year's sale of state assets. This figure includes a portion of revenues projected from the sale of the Slovak stake in the Czech ČSOB bank - originally intended for this year - which may be delayed until early next year.
