The loan will support the finance of new equipment and modernization of existing equipment in order to increase production capacity, improve operational efficiency and product quality.
The operational restructuring and new investments in Sevojno, a company privatised under the Government privatisation scheme, will demonstrate to the local and foreign investors that such privatisation can be successful in terms of increasing efficiency and profitability.
The proposed project will also accelerate the Company’s own corporate governance changes by committing it to high standards of corporate behaviour and timely and accurate financial reporting to external parties.
