PRAGUE, Jan 11 (Reuters) - Czech Prime Minister Petr Fiala reiterated the government aims to take larger control of the country's energy sector, and some steps may already be visible this year, he told news agency CTK in an interview published on Wednesday.

Fiala declined to give more details in his response to CTK's question on potential restructuring of the 70% state-owned electricity producer CEZ, citing the fact that CEZ is a publicly traded company.
