“The EU Commission has expressed satisfaction with the latest Slovenian steps towards the privatisation of NLB, Slovenia’s largest bank. ‘We are happy with both, the cooperation with the authorities but also with the result that has been achieved,’ Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager said on Tuesday.

‘We are getting the last details confirmed in order for us to finalize the decision,’ she said when quizzed by the STA, noting that the issue of NLB’s exposure to claims in Croatia was now being resolved.

Vestager did not say when the Commission will take the final decision, but it is widely expected this will happen this week or next.” (Slovenia Times)
