The Odessa Port-Side Chemical Plant (OPCP) will be put up for sale again in October, presumably at a lower starting price, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Economic Development and Trade Stepan Kubiv has said.
He noted at a forum dedicated to 100 days of work of the government in Kyiv that an unsuccessful tender for the sale of OPCP would become a valuable experience in the privatization of state enterprises.
“It will allow government to continue privatization in Ukraine, taking into account risks and the actual market price. Five years ago the enterprise cost much more than today”, Kubiv said.
According to him, investors interested in purchase of the plant, want a fair market price for the object. Kubiv stressed a more effective owner today was not the state but a private investor. (Interfax/Business World Magazine)
