BUSINESS BRIEFS

Energy sales arouse interest

Several investors have expressed interest in a capital entry into three Slovak state energy distributors. The foreign firms include the German RWE plus, E.ON and Energie Baden-Wurttemburg, Czech ČEZ, the Spanish Union Fenosa and Belgian company Tractebel.

The sales of VSE, SSE and ZSE, slated for completion by the middle of next year, are considered key steps in the further liberalisation of the energy sector.
