Schuster knows what SPP’s worth

President Rudolf Schuster urged the government to set a minimum price for which it is willing to sell a 49 per cent stake in gas utility SPP. The president said “if I am to be concrete, maybe Sk150 or Sk200 billion, those are both good prices.” His idea was turned down flat by Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda and dismissed by independent economists as amateurish and unfortunate.
