MOSCOW, October 25 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev believes that the pace of privatisation of state assets should be maintained next year. He expressed this view at a meeting of the Russian government on Thursday.
“I believe that this rate should be maintained in 2013,” said the RF prime minister. Medvedev added that “it is important both for the replenishment of the state budget and for the improvement of the efficiency management of enterprises, and also for the economy development in the right direction.”
The RF cabinet stressed on Thursday that on the results of 2012, according to experts, the market situation allows to collect more than 200 billion roubles from the sale of state assets. “This is almost 2 times more than last year,” said Medvedev.
According to the prime minister, “Privatisation deals should go according to the previously established schedule, but not contrary to the situation that is developing on the market.” Medvedev said that there should be some average-optimal suitable situation.
