Prime Minister Prodi to visit Slovakia

Italian Prime Minister Romano Prodi is to arrive for a one-day official visit to Slovakia on July 18. He was invited by Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico, who paid an official visit to Italy in October 2006.

The politicians plan to discuss bilateral cooperation between Slovakia and Italy, as well as the possibility of intensifying Slovak-Italian contacts and current European matters related to the outcome of the meeting of the European Council in June.

Prodi’s agenda also includes meeting with Slovak President Ivan Gašparovič, Speaker of Parliament Pavol Paška, Slovakia's ambassadors, and officials from the Italian-Slovak Chamber of Commerce.
