The interested person must also submit the notarized duplicate of the contract of sale of the facility or the enterprise, issued by the National Agency of Privatisation, former Central Agency of Restructuring and Privatization of Agricultural Enterprises or the contract issued by relevant enterprises before the establishment of the above-mentioned agencies.
