Dzurinda calls on government to lower taxes

Former Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda, the chairman of the opposition Slovak Democratic and Christian Union, said that Slovakia's economic growth makes it possible to cut payroll taxes. He called on the current government to reduce health and social insurance premiums and tax rates by one percent.

"The economy is experiencing such healthy growth and the forecast is so good that now is the time to improve the quality of the business environment," Dzurinda said. Moreover, he called on the government to withdraw its draft amendments to the Labour Code, as he is convinced that the proposed changes would curb the high economic growth and harm the business environment.
