Istrochem on block again

The government yesterday launched the resale of its over 91% stake in Slovakia’s largest chemicals maker, Istrochem. The package has a nominal value of Sk3.9 billion ($81 million). It has already been sold once, but was retaken by the state after privatisation fraud was identified.
