Samaras Wants Greek Asset-Sale Amendments This Month, Real Says

Aug. 11 (Bloomberg) -- Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras told government ministers to complete work this month on 77 amendments to be included in a bill that aims to speed up state asset sales, Real News reported, without citing anyone.

One of the amendments will be the abolition of a requirement for the state to keep a minimum stake in companies considered of strategic importance, the Athens-based newspaper reported in a preview of an article to be published in tomorrow’s edition.

Companies affected by the amendments include Public Power Corp. SA, which Samaras wants to split into smaller companies, Opap SA, Hellenic Petroleum SA, Athens Water Supply & Sewage Co. SA, Thessaloniki Water Supply & Sewage SA, Piraeus Port Authority SA, Thessaloniki Port Authority SA, Depa SA and Desfa SA, the newspaper said.
