The first enterprise specializes in the design of mini-metallurgical plants and other metallurgical equipment, and the second – in the processing and production of steel. Both companies started working more than 20 years ago.

Also, the Cabinet of Ministers proposed for liquidation the Horokhiv Foundry and Mechanical Plant and the Machine-Building Plant Orizon.

Privatization awaits 355 enterprises out of 420. There are a lot of distilleries, regional investment and development centers among these 355 objects

The State Property Fund must inform the Ministry of Economy within a three-month period of the decisions made regarding state-owned objects transferred to the Fund’s management.

As reported GMK Center, on March 30, the Verkhovna Rada adopted the government’s proposal draft law No. 4543, created to unfreeze the process of great privatization

Great privatization was suspended by Law No. 540-IX dated March 30, 2020. In connection with the quarantine, the document established restrictions on the privatization of large objects.

In the state budget of Ukraine for 2021, 12 billion UAH of revenues from privatization was provided. UAH 9 billion of them are from large privatization and UAH 3 billion from small privatization. However, none of the significant objects of the great privatization were sold: at the end of 2021 once again, the negotiations for the privatization of the United Mining and Chemical Company broke down, and the auction for the privatization of Bolshevik took place, but later the courts imposed an arrest for 100% of the shares of the plant and on buildings and structures, which are on the balance sheet.
