Or not in the interests of the politicians behind this management.
“For example, I am a supporter of the fact that if the state cannot justify why a certain company should remain in state ownership, that is, there are no such strategic, national tasks that only a state-owned company can fulfil. Then this company should be privatized,” he said.
“Let there be an effective private owner, the same international strategic investors, domestic strategic investors, and the state is doing what it should be doing. It is about creating equal rules for everyone, creating efficient markets and protecting citizens, protecting the country. "
