Six bid for euro information campaign tender

The winner of the tender to carry out a public information campaign for Slovakia's adoption of the euro (planned for January, 2009) will be one of six applicants who submitted bids before the deadline of 9:30 on Monday, August 06.

A committee will choose a winner by the end of the week.

At the same time, Igor Barát, the Government Appointee for Euro-adoption, stressed that the commission won't come under any pressure to make a hasty decision. "The priority is quality,” he said. “Speed is of secondary importance."
