There will be no need for another political decision after the one taken by the ruling tripartite coalition over the weekend, according to Dimitrov. The plants will be privatized through the BSE, Dimitrov was adamant. I hope that will be able to find a buyer soon, Dimitrov added.
There is both domestic and foreign investor interest in the two plants. Large-scale Turkish companies are currently examining the plants in Plovdiv and Stara Zagora, BGNES reported.
