MINSK, 14 December (BelTA) - Belarusian MPs have passed the first reading of the bill on privatization of state property and reorganization of state unitary enterprises into joint stock companies, BelTA has learned.

Using the right of legislative initiative, the document was submitted to the parliament by MPs of the Standing Commission on Economic Policy Lenid Brich and Sergei Zemchenok.
