Любопытно, что из всего этого получится_Греция отменяет приватизацию

Греческое правительство отменяет дальнейшую приватизацию Государственной энергетической корпорации (ДЕИ) и Греческой нефтегазовой компании «Эллиника Петрелеа» (ЭЛПЕ, Hellenic Petroleum). Об этом сообщил сегодня журналистам новый министр производственной реформы, охраны окружающей среды Панайотис Лафазанис. «Наши международные энергетические отношения будут носить комплексный и многоаспектный характер, и при этом мы не будем ничьим сателлитом», — сказал министр. — «Греция в энергетической сфере будет действовать исключительно на основе своих собственных национальных интересов. В качестве одного из первых шагов нового правительства будет окончание дробления и приватизации ДЕИ, которой будет возвращен статус госкомпании». «ДЕИ сохранит свой государственный характер, будет работать на благо всего общества», — отметил Лафазанис, добавив, что цель состоит в том, чтобы дать развитию компании новый импульс. При этом, глава ведомства заверил, что будут пересмотрены все соглашения ДЕИ с другими фирмами, чтобы «избавиться от тех, которые заключались с грабительскими интересами». По его словам, будет положен конец и приватизации нефтегазовой компании «Эллиника Петрелеа». При этом министр сообщил, что будет полностью реализована провозглашенная в Салониках программа Коалиции радикальных левых сил (СИРИЗА) по бесплатному предоставлению электроэнергии гражданам из нуждающихся социальных групп. ------------------- Справка: Основной ее целью ДЕИ при создании было объявлено -- планирование и воплощение в жизнь общегосударственной энергетической политики, которая за счет использования отечественной продукции и ресурсов, будет распространять дешевую электроэнергию для всех греческих граждан. В 2001 году ДЕИ акционировалась -- правительство Греции оставило контрольный пакет (51,1% акций) В июне 2011 года греческое правительство объявило о продаже 17% своей доли. Работники ответили отключениями электроэнергии в отдельных городах по всей Греции. ДЕИ разработала первую Wind Farm в мире в изолированной энергосистеме острова Китнос в 1982 году. В 2013-14 гг ДЕИ включили в программу как одну из организаций, ответственных за сбор налога на недвижимость (по программе финансовой поддержки МВФ)
