Experts have suggested that the Czech and Slovak power generation companies be jointly privatised, an idea that was not dismissed by Economy Minister Robert Nemcsics. However, he pointed out that offers were already on the table in the current tender process for state-owned generator Slovenské elektrárne (SE).
The state offered a 49 per cent stake in SE last summer, and several foreign investors have shown interest. However, none of them is keen to take on Slovakia's two nuclear facilities, which are currently included in the package.
