Ireland to Discuss Asset Sales With Troika, Business Post Says
Ireland’s negotiations with the troika this week will focus on the potential sale of Bord Gais Energy, Coillte and the Dublin Port Authority, the Sunday Business Post reported, citing unidentified people.
The troika, consisting of the International Monetary Fund, European Central Bank and European Union, wants the government to raise 5 billion euros ($6.3 billion) to service its debt burden, the newspaper said. No deal has yet been made on the sale of ESB, Ireland’s state-owned power company, it reported.
