THE AVERAGE monthly wage at the National Bank of Slovakia (NBS) reached Sk38,528 (€1,030) last year, more than twice the national average. Furthermore, property declarations published by NBS officials for 2004 show its two vice-governors earned around Sk480,000 (€12,800) a month, and that the governor was paid at least that much, the Pravda daily wrote. Other members of the board of directors earn around Sk250,000 (€6,670) per month.
An annual report states that the NBS' wage costs reached Sk533 million (€14.2 million), while its total expenditures reached 52.7 billion (€1.4 billion).
