Parliament dissolves regional centres

THE SLOVAK parliament adopted a bill on May 15 that abolishes the regional offices of central government and orders them to close their doors as of October 1.

The offices' assets and civil servants will be transferred to district offices, except those who choose to retire. The measure is expected to reduce staff by 150, but the cost of implementing it will exceed the estimated benefits by about Sk2 million. Special laws will solve the transfer of concrete competencies in individual state administration sectors and calculate the impact of the related transfer of employees on the state budget.
