Slovakia to open labour market to Romanians and Bulgarians

AT ITS session on October 11, the Slovak cabinet decided that the country will open its labour market to Romania and Bulgaria when they join the European Union on January 1, 2007.

Foreign Minister Ján Kubiš does not expect an influx of workers from these two countries. According to a public opinion survey carried out by the Romanians and Bulgarians, their citizens expressed a greater interest in working in Mediterranean countries or countries such as Germany and Great Britain than Slovakia.

Labour Minister Viera Tomanová also recommended opening the labour market. Kubiš is convinced that if Slovakia calls for equal treatment from older EU states, then future EU member states should be considered as equal partners as well.
