Slovakia preparing to open labour market to EU newcomers

SLOVAKIA does not intend to apply temporary labour movement restrictions on the citizens of Bulgaria and Romania upon their entry to the EU on January 1, 2007.

Instead, Foreign Minister Ján Kubiš and Labour Minister Viera Tomanová have prepared a joint proposal for opening Slovakia's labour market to the citizens of Romania and Bulgaria. The proposal will undergo a review by other ministries until Monday.

According to the Sme daily, the draft does include the possibility of temporary labour market restrictions, but overall tends more towards the complete opening of the market.
