The State Property Fund plans to announce more than 200 auctions in the first quarter of this year.
The State Property Fund was instructed in 2020 to transparently privatize more than 300 objects that are planned for this year, Prime Minister of Ukraine Oleksiy Honcharuk noted.
“Privatization is the attraction of investments and the creation of new jobs through the transfer of unprofitable, non-strategic objects owned by the state into private ownership. For decades, most state-owned enterprises have been unprofitable for the state, but quite profitable for oligarchs, who earned millions through their “people” in jobs. We are eliminating these schemes. Unprofitable enterprises will be privatized. Moreover, all strategic enterprises will remain the property of the state! ”, Honcharuk wrote in Telegram.
According to him, in the last quarter of 2019, more objects were put up for sale through e-auctions, than in the previous three quarters of last year. In general, in 2019, revenues from privatization were doubled than in 2018.
