LONDON Dec 7 Cyprus will try again "soon" to
push through the sale of a minority stake in state telecoms
company Cyta, Finance Minister Harris Georgiades said on
"We shall have another go, having failed to convince our
parliament with a proposal for an outright privatisation. We
shall have another go soon proposing a minority stake to be
offered to an investor," Georgiades said at an Economist event.
Cyprus attempted to sell a stake in Cyta last year as part
of a sweeping privatisation programme that was part of an EU/IMF
bailout in 2013.
