It's good to see so much interest in the sale of ANA Aeroportos, with various bidders, Vinci, Fraport and Flughafen Zurich and others
From an economic rather than an accounting perpective , the national accounting treatment by Eurostat is just that "accounting", when what really matters is the "economics" of the deal, getting a good price from a good strategic partner.
So the Government should basically ignore Eurostat and take its time to make a good business deal, even if that takes more time and goes into 2013.
Eurostat accounting treatment is precisely what allowed the accumulation of exessive public sector liabilities.
It is a poor guide to good public financial management .
