Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman urges representatives of French businesses to take part in the privatization of state enterprises. He stated during a meeting with heads of French companies in Ukraine on Tuesday.
Volodymyr Groysman informed the interlocutors that during its session on Wednesday the Government would take a decision about the start of privatization of Odessa Portside Plant.
"We will be happy if French businessmen take part in the privatization of the plant”, said Volodymyr Groysman. “I assure you it will be an open, public and competitive privatization".
The Prime Minister noted that there are about 3.8 thousand state-owned enterprises in Ukraine. "A hundred, maybe two [companies] are of strategic importance, all the rest must be sold to leverage investment", said Volodymyr Groysman.
Apart from that, the Government will prolong corporatization and the process of replacement of management at the state companies, he added.
