South Africa to sell non-core state assets - finmin

JOHANNESBURG, July 13 (Reuters) - South Africa Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba laid an ambitious 14-point programme on Thursday to wrench the economy out of recession that included the sale of non-core assets and partial privatisation of state-owned firms.

Gigaba also said the government would reduce the issuance of guarantees to state companies, especially those extended for operational purposes. (Reporting by Mfuneko Toyana; Writing by Olivia Kumwenda-Mtambo; Editing by Ed Cropley)
