Law changing 4 enterprises into govt firms approved
The draft covering Baghlan Sugar enterprise, Helmand Construction enterprise, Spin Ghar enterprise and security enterprise has been prepared by the Cabinet ministers in 2014.
Anarkali Hunaryar, who heads the Senate economics, finance and budgetary commission, said the enterprises had been active under the Finance Ministry, but after chanting their status to government firms, the private sector could also purchase shares of the companies.
After changing the enterprises into firms, different financial institutions would be ready to invest in the sector due to good investment environment for them, she added.
