Industry of Machinery and Tractors (IMT) was sold to the Indian company TAFE, at the initial price of around 66 million dinars.
The Indian company was the only bidder at the auction. It has been IMT’s partner for decades.
The sale was announced on March 1st, and the deposit was 26.4 million dinars.
