Ljubljana, 23 September (STA) - The government on Thursday nominated the management of the State Enterprise Asset Management Agency, which will assume the responsibility for the management of state stakes in companies under legislation that became effective in May.
The chairman, Dagmar Komar, is a lawyer with years-long experience at subsidiaries of Zavarovalnica Triglav, Slovenia's leading insurer, Finance Minister Franc Krizanic told reporters after the government session.
He was hopeful that Komar, as well as Danilo Grasic and Marko Golob, who were proposed as members of the agency's management board, would be endorsed by parliament.
Under the act on the management of state enterprise assets, which was passed in early May, members of the agency's management and council are appointed and dismissed by the National Assembly with an absolute majority.
The government selected members of the agency's council in the summer, nominating Alja Markovic Cas as the chairman. Tomaz Kerestes, Mitja Mocivnik, Otmar Zorn and Mojca Majic were proposed as members.
New hiring is not planned; about 30 employees will be moved to the agency from government ministries. For now, they will be based at the Finance Ministry's headquarters, while they will probably move later.
The act on the management of state enterprise assets was the final condition for Slovenia's membership of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development.
