France interested in Slovak heating

FRANCE wants to take part in the privatization of six heating utility facilities in Bratislava, Trnava, Žilina, Zvolen, Martin and Košice. French Minister of Foreign Affairs Phillippe Douste-Blazy confirmed the information after talks with his Slovak counterpart Eduard Kukan on October 6, the SME daily reported.

Currently, France is the second biggest foreign investor in Slovakia and it wants to keep developing its investments in the country, French Minister for European Affairs Catherine Colonna told journalists on October 8.

"We want to extend the co-operation in the field of municipal heating, where the company Dalkia is quite successful already. Two French companies - EDF and Areva - have been competing to get the opportunity to invest in the power industry. Other French firms are interested in the protection of EU borders and in equipping Bratislava airport with a camera system," the French Minister said.
