Telecom privatisation to begin by year-end

11 Oct 2005

The Slovenian government is likely to begin the privatisation of fixed line incumbent Telecom Slovenia by the end of 2005, when it is expected to present a strategy outlining the process. According to the head of the country’s Economics Ministry, Matjaz Jansa, no model of privatisation has yet been decided on. Earlier this year the Ministry said it would sell a 25% stake to a combination of a strategic partner, a portfolio investor and domestic investors, but it has not confirmed whether these plans are definite. Jansa said the privatisation is expected to be completed in 2006 at the earliest.
