MINSK, May 18 (Itar-Tass) —— Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko is ready to sell state property the government is unable to handle for a normal price.
“We will certainly sell the property we are unable to cope with, but for a normal price,” he told St. Petersburg Governor Georgy Poltavchenko on Friday.
“You are absolutely correct. The policy must be pragmatic. The privatization spree we had in the 1990s is a warning,” he said. “The country and the people must get the most out of the privatization. That is what we are doing now.”
