Energy privatisation back on the agenda

Economy Minister Róbert Nemcsics is to restart moves to privatise the state electricity producer Slovenské elektrárne in the light of new interest from undisclosed companies.

The privatisation advisor Pricewaterhouse Coopers declined to comment on when the process was likely to be completed. It is still unclear whether the company would be sold as a single entity or divided, as had previously been suggested, into two, one for nuclear energy and one for other forms of energy production.
