Uzbekistan may sell a 10-15% stake in uranium and gold miner Navoi Mining and Metallurgical Combine in 2024, deputy prime minister Jamshid Kucharov told Reuters on Wednesday.
“There is no concrete plan yet, but we may come to it in 2024,” he said, adding that the company would first transform its structure and accounts in line with international standards.
The Navoi mining conglomerate is one of the Central Asian nation’s biggest industrial enterprises. The government earlier said it was slated for privatisation but has until now given no details of the plan.
