Economy minister meets with USSK President David H. Lohr

ECONOMY Minister Ľubomír Jahnátek said during a meeting with U.S. Steel Kosice (USSK) director David H. Lohr on August 10 that the new government does not plan any major changes in the areas of taxation or in the provision of investment stimuli.

"We want to approach every investor on an equal basis. Also, a domestic entity can receive state aid if it fulfills all the requirements," the minister said.

He also assured Lohr that decisions which concern businesses, taxation, and other affairs that have an impact on country's economy will be formed in a wide discussion with representatives of the business sector, business experts and institutions, SITA wrote.

“We reject the idea that crucial decisions influencing the interests of businesses and the government should be the products of only state administration employees," said Jahnátek.
