Dec. 21 (Bloomberg) -- The Cyprus government agreed to sell the Cyprus Stock Exchange, the only remaining state-owned bourse in Europe, Finance Minister Kikis Kazamias said.
Kazamias said the plan to convert the exchange into a stock company is “official,” according to an e-mailed audio file from the Nicosia-based ministry today. “Initially, the state will be the only shareholder but gradually we shall go ahead with the privatization”.
