Economy minister says state will remain in INA owneship structure

Economy Minister Tomislav Panenic said on Wednesday that discussions about whether the oil company INA was of national interest were pointless.

Panenic said this when asked which lobbies were behind the campaign involving INA.

"We have to harmonise all policies. I learnt from the media that there are many groups undermining this process. I want us to have a quality company where we can hold talks with the other co-owner, Panenic said.

He added he wanted INA to be successful on the market, be vertically integrated, keep jobs, and invest in research and development. He underscored the state will permanently remain in INA's ownership structure.

Panenic visited the wood-processing company Kircek in the northern Croatian town of Kircek, where he said wood-processing is a branch of industry with prospects.
