"Grotesque Battle" for Remains of State Companies
"Two out of three questions to the prime minister in parliament yesterday were aimed at the reorganisation of state management of companies, while the Capital Assets Management Agency (AUKN) was worried about skills of supervisors in state banks (they will investigate qualifications of London financier Keith Miles)," the daily writes.
From the state holdings, EUR 50.6m trickled into the state budget in dividends and profit last year. But at about EUR 10bn of state assets, the figure is a poor bargain, the business daily writes.
"The solution is simple. Because we ourselves apparently can not manage companies, it only makes sense to sell them," the daily reiterates its long-standing position.
